Iraq has urged the citizens to leave Syria
The Iraqi government on Tuesday urged its citizens in strife-hit Syria, mainly refugees from their country's own violence, to return home because of "increasing attacks" on them.
"Iraqis are guests who live temporarily in Syria and the Iraqi government calls on them to return to the country," government spokesman Ali Dabbagh said.
He urged "Iraqis in Syria to return to the country after an increase in attacks against them".
