Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes accuses the US Consulate of being behind the sabotage and burning in Basra
BAGHDAD, Deputy Chairman of the popular crowd Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes accused the US Consulate of being behind the sabotage and burning in Basra, stressing that we will provide full evidence and information on the consular involvement to the competent authorities.
Abu Mahdi said in an interview with a number of media that Haidar Al- Abadi and members of his government failed miserably during the previous phase and the most important service file, "noting that" Al-Abadi did not meet most of his promises to the popular crowd and deliberately obstruct the special law of popular mobilization. "
On the relationship between Al-Abadi and the popular crowd, al-Mohandes said that the relationship was tense throughout the previous period, where we asked Abadi to allocate salaries to the fighters of the popular crowd, which has not been implemented until now, and also rejected the law of retirement and service.
The Deputy Chairman of the popular crowd said that the dismissal of Faleh al-Fayadh from three positions is political par excellence.
On the demonstrations that broke out in Basra a week ago, al-Mohandes explained that the US consulate in Basra is behind the sabotage and burning of the province, "stressing that" we will provide full evidence and information on the involvement of the US consulate in Basra to the competent authorities. "
He pointed out that "we will work to prevent any new exposure to the headquarters of the popular crowd."
On the American presence on Iraqi territory, al-Mohandes said that "6000 to 8000 American soldiers are present in Iraq, it is unfortunate that the Americans began to use the Iraqi land, where they are located south-west of Sinjar and we told al-Abadi so but he denied his knowledge."
He pointed out that "the American presence is dangerous and the constitution prevents the use of the territory of Iraq to strike any neighboring country," pointing out that "we assure the Americans that there will be no Shiite-Shiite war."
He added that "American insistence is behind him something dangerous and the politicians to overcome the pressures and impose the will of Iraq."
