The member of the Iraqi High Commission for Human Rights, Dr. Ali Al-Bayati. Discussed with a delegation of Al-Alawiya Holy Shrine the documentation of terrorism crimes in Iraq at various stages.
At the beginning of the meeting, the delegation pointed out that the Shrine has a project to prepare a comprehensive Encyclopedia to document terrorism crimes since 2003, especially the stage of Daesh entrance and the declaration of Fatwa Al-Jihad , Indicating that the Shrine seeks to include statistics and data issued by the official institutions into Encyclopedia in order to ensure its credibility as a reliable source adopted by future generations.
