SULAIMANI — A spokesperson for Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi said on Tuesday (July 28) that the federal Council of Ministers has decided to distribute gifts of 75,000 Iraqi dinars ($63) to poor residents on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, which begins at the end of this week.
After making that announcement during a press conference, Kadhimi’s spokesperson Ahmed Mullah Talal turned to the criticisms levied at the government regarding the deaths of three protesters after they were attacked by the security forces on Sunday night.
Talal said that the prime minister has repeatedly called for protesters to be protected and suggested that “government ministers go to the streets and listen to the protesters’ demands.”
“The prime minister has demanded that no weapons be used against the protesters,” he said.
