The Iraqi government has filed a claim with the United Nations for financial compensation from Israel for bombing the Iraqi nuclear reactor in 1981.
Iraqi prime minister Nouri Al-Maliki is seeking the compensation after the cabinet decided on November 25 to set up a “neutral committee” to determine the scale of compensation that Israel will be asked to pay.
The belief is that Iraq will sue Israel for billions of dollars for blowing up the nuclear reactor at Osirak in June 1981. The Iraqis will cite UN Resolution 487, which was passed after the attack. The resolution condemned Israel’s action and said that Iraq was entitled to compensation.
