Hassan Alawi, former Iraqi MP, claimed to have delivered a letter of Izzat al-Douri – ex Vice Chairman of the Iraqi Revolutionary Council – to Iran. Alawi said that he received the letter around two months ago, in his home in Erbil (Iraqi Kurdistan). In the letter al-Douri prasied Tehran and apologized for the invasion of Kuwait, during the Saddam’s era. He also proposed to mediate a compromise between what remains of the al-Baath party, Iranian regime, Kuwait and United States.
After the fall of the Saddam’s regime, al-Douri led the so called “Naqshabdi Army”. Experts wrote that he has cooperated directly with Daesh (aka Isis), especially for the conquest of Musul. On April 2015, the media reported that al-Douri was killed by the Iraqi Army, but one month later an audio was released to deny the rumors.
