Baghdad / … political analyst, Wathiq al-Hashemi, explained on Saturday that the first reason for calling the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to his followers to withdraw from the demonstration squares is due to the lack of support of the demonstrators in Tahrir Square for the demonstration he called on Friday in order to remove the American forces.
Hashemi added to “Ain Iraq News”, “The second reason is that some demonstrators see that there are pressures exerted on Sadr at his residence in Qom by some Iranian and Iraqi political parties to withdraw,” noting that “the strength of the demonstrations decreased a lot after the withdrawal of the Sadrists.” However, the demonstrations are not expected to end, and if they are broken up by force, they will soon return. “
It is noteworthy that the Sadrists supporters raised their tents yesterday, Friday, from Tahrir Square in the capital, Baghdad, as well as in the sit-in squares in the southern governorates, where protesters have been protesting against corruption for months, Friday evening.
The protestors, who had been in the demonstrations for 3 months, had refused to invite Al-Sadr, on Friday, to a million million-strong supporters of the armed factions to demand the departure of the American forces. Finished 2
