SULAIMANI — Iraq’s top Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani condemned on Friday a US air strike on Baghdad airport that killed Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and called on all parties to practice restraint.

“The vicious attack on Baghdad international airport last night is an insolent breach of Iraqi sovereignty and international agreements. It led to the killing of several commanders who defeated Islamic State terrorists,” Sistani’s office said in a statement according to Reuters.

“These events and more indicate the country is heading towards very difficult times. We call on all concerned parties to behave with self restraints and act wisely,” he said.
