To follow the massacre scenario of Hawija (Kirkuk region, Iraq) on April 23rd 2013, when 50 were killed and 110 wounded -according to the director of Kirkuk hospital- on the hand of the Iraqi military forces, it is easy to note that the escalation of the situation step by step is a miniature scenario of the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003, the only difference is that in the Hawija massacre troops put on the military Iraqi uniform -after Iraqi occupation- while in 2003 they were putting on the American uniform. It is also the tenth anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

The government of Iraq, installed under occupation and maintained after the US retreat, has committed a new massacre against peaceful protesters in the town of Hawija. The forces used and the way it was achieved reminds us of the Fallujah massacre at the beginning of the occupation.
