Iraqi Shi'ite militia leader Aws Al-Khafaji, the Secretary-General of the Abu Fadhl Al-Abbas Brigades, addressed members of his militia preparing for the expected operation to liberate Fallujah. In a video posted on the YouTube account of the Brigades, Al-Khafaji says: "This is our opportunity to cleanse Iraq by eradicating the Fallujah tumor."


Following are excerpts


Aws Al-Khafaji: Fallujah has been the fountain head of terrorism since 2004 and to this day. Rare are the tribal sheikhs there who are human beings. There is not a single patriotic person there, nor is there a single devout cleric, who adheres even to the Sunni doctrine. This is our opportunity to cleanse Iraq by eradicating the Fallujah tumor - an opportunity to cleanse Iraq and to purge Islam all over the world.

We are seeking victory, not martyrdom. Allah promised us victory.
