The deputy of the Liberal bloc Awad al-Awadi, accusing Iran of the most dangerous, stressing that it stands behind the bombing of “military imams” in response to the visit of the leader of the Sadrist movement Moqtada al-Sadr to Saudi Arabia in 2006.
“Iran is accused of terrorism coming from it, but everyone is defending what he has, and there are reports that many of the bombings in the regions have come from Iran,” Awad al-Awadi said in a televised interview with Sky Press.
In the most serious accusation of Iran, Al-Awadi revealed that “what happened in the city of Samarra from the bombing of the Shrine of the Imams of the military, many reports that there are interests, cells or terrorist groups entered from Iran, or with knowledge or otherwise, we do not know.”
On February 22, 2006, the bombing of the Imam Ali al-Hadi and al-Hasan al-Askari shrine in Samarra sparked sectarian strife in Iraq, where Baghdad was the scene of the most violent burning of mosques and the killing of civilians on identity.
The accusation of the leader of the Sadrist movement to Iran, days after a visit raised a lot of controversy conducted by the leader of the Sadrist movement in Iraq, Moqtada al-Sadr to Saudi Arabia.
In May 2016, thousands of Sadr followers chanted slogans condemning Iran’s intervention in Iraq. “Iran is a coward,” shouted protesters gathered in the celebration square amidst the Green Zone after storming it.
