"It is a terror campaign against our leaders," Sheikh Abdel Rahman al-Assai, head of the Obaidi tribe, said.
"We are not going allow them to silence us and do this to us. The resistance opposes the occupation and is an Iraqi affair.

"We never offered refuge to terrorists. All those who offer shelter to terrorists will be treated like terrorists," their statement added.
That last sentence sounds familiar.
