Shafak News / Saleh Muhammad al-Iraqi, a close associate of the Sadr movement leader, attacked the Iraqi “resistance factions” on Saturday, considering that they are providing the contractor with the resistance.

And the Iraqi said in a tweet, “Know that many politicians and some of the so-called factions of the resistance … do not preach from the scourge and the epidemic … and are still waiting for the gains.”

And he added, “My wonder is to present the enterprise to the resistance,” addressing them, “Enough is your love for the world … your people are fighting death and the anticipated war – God forbid – and the epidemic.”

This position comes hours after eight Iraqi factions close to Iran announced that they were targeting American forces on Iraqi soil after they considered them “occupation forces.”

This came in a joint statement issued by Iraqi factions calling themselves “the factions of the Iraqi resistance”, which is the Asaib Ahl al-Haq movement, the Loyalty Movement, the Imam Soldiers movement, the Najaba movement, the Brigades of the Martyrs ’Brigades, the Imam Ali Brigades, the Ashura Brigades, and the Khorasan Saraya.

Shafak News / On Saturday, a deputy from the Al-Fateh parliamentary bloc announced the issuance of an order from the bloc regarding an upcoming parliamentary session to consider whether or not to grant confidence to the government of Prime Minister-designate Adnan al-Zarfi.

“The presidency of the Al-Fateh bloc directed its deputies not to come to the parliament’s session to give confidence to the Zarfi government,” Al-Fateh MP Mukhtar Al-Mousawi told Shafaq News.

Al-Moussawi added that “the bloc submitted, yesterday, Friday, an official book to the President of the Republic to withdraw the candidacy of Adnan Al-Zarfi for his unconstitutionality, especially after the Federal Court’s decision to withdraw the decree appointing Muhammad Rajab al-Kubaisi, an original judge of the court.”

Moussawi concluded his speech by saying, “What is built on falsehood is false.”

On Saturday, Al-Zorfi presented his government program to Parliament, accompanied by a request to renew the confidence-giving session for his cabinet, which he said had been completed.

Al-Zrafi faces opposition from prominent Shiite forces, headed by the Al-Fatah coalition led by Hadi al-Amiri and the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki.

Opponents of al-Zorfi say he is close to the United States, while armed Shi’ite factions close to Iran describe him as a CIA agent.

Shafaq News / An explicit threat by Iraqi armed factions loyal to Iran coinciding with the presentation of Prime Minister-designate Adnan Al-Zarfi to his government program in parliament in a final step before the vote on his cabinet, which must take place no later than 17 April.

Eight factions backed by Tehran on Saturday issued a joint statement accusing Al-Zrafi of “employment” and threatening the lawmakers who support his candidacy, while vowing to step up operations against American forces in Iraq.

This statement comes in light of a campaign rejecting the assignment of al-Zrafi, carried out by political forces backed by Iran, the most prominent of which is the Al-Fatah coalition led by Hadi al-Amiri and the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki.

The hardline stance of the pro-Iranian forces towards Zarrafi’s mandate came days after an unannounced visit to the successor of Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Ismail Qāni, to Iraq, which according to the leaks came as part of Tehran’s attempts to unify the Shiite forces to prevent the former Najaf governor from becoming prime minister. .

But on the ground, it appears that the mission of Qaani failed, which summoned these factions, most notably the Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq and the al-Nujaba Movement, to issue this statement, according to political analyst Ihsan al-Shammari, according to what was reported by the Washington-funded Al Hurra TV website.

The Ameri bloc is headed by the leader of the Badr Organization, and it consists of parties allied to the armed factions of the Popular Mobilization Forces, most of whom are backed by Iran.

The former leader of the Badr Karim al-Nuri organization says in a post that “the rejectionists of al-Zorfi are a political lack to keep the situation as it is from non-state, insecurity and domination of the decision in the hands of the rejectionist parties.”

He added, “They rejected Zarfi because they wanted to keep the resigned Prime Minister Adel Abdel-Mahdi or something like him under their command.” The government of Adel Abdul Mahdi resigned last December, in the wake of the popular protests that reject it, and since that time Iraq has lived in a political stagnation.

Al-Zarfi’s assignment came after Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi’s apology for not forming the government because a political consensus could not be found in the most divided parliament in Iraqi history. As a result, the government of Adel Abdul-Mahdi, the resigned, is still conducting business.

In contrast, Hussein Allawi, a professor of national security at Baghdad University, believes that the statement of the pro-Iranian factions carries several messages, the most prominent of which is that “they express a clear Iranian position, but it is not announced diplomatically, which is the refusal to nominate Al-Zarfi.”

Allawi adds that these factions “are also trying to pressure deputies and other components, such as the Sunnis and Kurds, not to vote for Al-Zarfi.” Allawi also indicates that the Iraqi armed factions want to deliver a message that they will escalate their attacks against American interests and will make the battle open with the United States in the event that the Al-Zarfi government is passed.

This is not the first time that pro-Iranian factions have threatened the Iraqi parliamentarians. They did the same thing before holding a parliamentary session in January and a vote was taken on a decision that obliges the Iraqi government to remove American forces from the country.

As a result of these threats, which were made at the time by the Hezbollah Brigades, Sunni and Kurdish deputies boycotted the session, which was restricted to the participation of Shiite representatives only.

Kurdish lawmaker Imad Bajlan says, “Iraqi political forces are accustomed to the threats of these outlawed factions that refuse to order the orders of the state.”

He adds, “We hear from time to time statements in which these factions threaten members of Parliament, the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister-designate. It is not strange for them.”

And he continues that passing al-Zrafi or not is a legal matter, and the language of threat does not work because the ball is currently in the court of Parliament, and it is he who decides the matter.

He concluded by saying, “These factions are working hard to thwart the passing of Al-Zarfi for well-known reasons related to the courtesy of a regional country,” referring to Iran.

“However, events have taught me that when the arrows of strangers unify their direction towards one goal, the right is there,” he added.

He added, “Perhaps the one who is charged this time does not fulfill all the aspirations of the Iraqis, but he is the best option available to them.”
