Baghdad / Obelisk: An important source in the Iraqi Ministry of Defense said that the National Security Council, which includes the prime minister, ministers of security, intelligence, interior and defense, decided to withdraw all the crowd factions from the capital Baghdad immediately and prevent the movement of any faction from the crowd from its positions except with prior approval, according to Radio Monte Carlo International
Parallel information, according to the radio, stated that the head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Faleh al-Fayyad, who attended the Security Council meeting, faced strong criticism after the attacks on demonstrators in Jisr al-Sank and al-Khilani Square that left dozens dead and wounded on Friday night, 6 November.
The source says to the radio .. The decision to withdraw the Hashd forces comes after French, British and German letters that asked the caretaker head, Adel Abdel-Mahdi, to take this step. The step also coincides with the spread of what are known as the blue hats, who are fighters of the Sadrist movement Muqtada Al-Sadr in Tahrir Square, central Baghdad, and therefore the goal of the step is to avoid any friction between the crowd and the Sadrist movement, which leads to the deterioration of the security situation in a very dangerous way.
