The newspaper says that: ‘US interrogation reports, which have been declassified recently, shed light on one of the most prominent Shiite political figures in Iraq and the role of Iran in the training of Iraqi militias that attacked US forces.

According to documents published by the newspaper, on June 18, 2007, Khazali admitted during the investigation that the IRGC had trained Iraqi militias in three bases near Tehran, including the Imam Khomeini base.

According to Khazali, the Iranians did not impose any specific goal on their operations in Iraq, but stressed that Shiite militia attacks should focus on British forces to force them to withdraw and pressure US forces to withdraw as well.

US officials explain that most of the roles played by Khazali, which led to his arrest is his attempt to kidnap US soldiers in the city of Karbala south of Baghdad, which led to the deaths of five American soldiers The target of the attack, which was planned in Iran, is taking American hostages and exchanged elements of Muqtada Sadr was detained by US forces, Khazali said during the investigation.

The US move is likely to derail the political scene in Baghdad, where Khazali competes for power with other Shiite political leaders, including Moqtada al-Sadr, a Shi’ite cleric whose movement won the first place in the May 12 election. , While the list of Khazali in those elections about 15 parliamentary seats.

In response to these documents, Al-Daraji, a member of the political bureau of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, said: “The United States appears to be leading a campaign against al-Ubeib and its leader Qais al-Khazali because he strongly rejected foreign intervention in Iraqi affairs.”

The Barzani office said in a statement before midnight on Wednesday that the leader of the Democratic Party of Kurdistan discussed with the US Secretary of State to accelerate the formation of the Iraqi government.
This comes after an informed source told the Twilight News, the leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Massoud Barzani, a request from the US President’s envoy to join the Kurds towards a Shiite camp that ends with the formation of the Iraqi government. 
He added that Barzani had recently held a meeting in Arbil with US envoy Brett McGurk at the request of the latter, centered on the formation of the Iraqi government and the formation of the largest bloc. 
He said that McGurk, asked Barzani to join the Kurds to the alliance of the nucleus consisting of Sadr, Hakim, Abbadi, Allawi, and not to go towards the Fatah alliance led by Amiri, Khazali, Maliki. 
The source said that Barzani seemed annoyed by the words of Trump’s envoy, and told him “do not talk to me this way.” 
He added that Barzani also told the envoy of Trump, “The Kurds, especially the Kurdistan Democratic Party does not have red lines on a person or a party and will ally with those who meet the demands of the Kurds and guarantees the rights of the people of Kurdistan.”

Sadr and Abadi represent the first axis of the Shiite blocs winning in the elections that took place in May, while the second axis consists of the alliance, “the conquest,” which includes factions of the popular political crowd led by Secretary General of the Badr Organization Hadi Amiri, and a coalition of state law led by Vice President Nuri al-Maliki. 
The bipartisan dispute continues over the formation of a major bloc nominating as prime minister of the new government. Which needs 165 seats, out of a total of 329 seats in the new Iraqi parliament.
