Shafaq News/ A prominent leader in the coordination framework, which brings together the Shiite forces with the exception of the Sadrist movement, revealed on Saturday the position of the unified framework on the Sadrists’ demonstration, stressing that the leader of the movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, is responsible for the escalation and “bloodshed”.

The leader told Shafaq News Agency, “The statement issued a while ago by the coordination framework regarding the demonstration of al-Sadr’s supporters and their storming of the Green Zone and the parliament building, was issued with the agreement of all the leaders of the framework.”

He added that “the leaders of the framework sent messages to the religious authority in Najaf in order to push the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, to stop these behaviors that burn everything and bring down the state and its prestige, and they demanded the reference to intervene so that no blood would fall.”

He pointed out that “the leaders of the framework carried al-Sadr the burden of blood if it was asked,” adding that “the framework’s position on al-Sadr is calm and dialogue with him, and this is also the position of the commander of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Ismail Qaani, in his last meeting with the framework.”

And regarding the demonstration called for by the framework, the leader explained that “the demonstration will be outside the Green Zone, but the location has not been determined yet, and it will start today, but the date has not been set yet.”

And regarding the framework’s candidate for prime minister, the leader stressed, “All the framework forces are committed to Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani and do not succumb to the creative chaos used by Al-Sadr.”

Earlier today, the coordinating framework, which includes Shiite forces, except for the Sadrist movement, called on its masses to demonstrate against the Sadrist movement’s protests.

The framework was mentioned in a statement received by Shafak News Agency; “We are following with great concern the unfortunate events taking place in the capital, Baghdad, during these days, especially the encroachment on constitutional institutions, the storming of the parliament, the threat to attack the judicial authority, and attacking official headquarters and security services.”

The statement continued, “While we recommend restraint and the utmost degree of patience and readiness, we call upon the masses of the Iraqi people who believe in the law, the constitution and constitutional legitimacy to demonstrate peacefully in defense of the state, its legitimacy and its institutions, foremost of which is the judicial and legislative authority, and to stand in the face of this dangerous transgression and departure from the law, customs and Sharia.”

This morning, a massive demonstration of the Sadrist movement began in Tahrir Square in the center of the capital, Baghdad, and the demonstrators headed to the Green Zone, whose walls they managed to storm, to reach the House of Representatives, which they entered again after they stormed it last Wednesday, for their rejection of the candidate of the coordination framework for prime minister, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani.
