PMF to safeguard Iraqi constitution, political process: Al-Fayyad
The Popular Mobilization Forces in Iraq underlines its support for the state and its institutions in light of the latest developments in the country.
The Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) dealt on Monday a strong blow to a group of ISIS terrorists in Mosul, PMF chief Faleh Al-Fayyad said.
He promised the Iraqi people that the PMF will "protect and preserve the political process through constitutional institutions."
"The PMF today dealt a strong blow today to a group of ISIS terrorists in Mosul [...] and the PMF has targets among terrorist groups that we will carry out in the next few days," Al-Fayyad revealed.
The head of the Fatah Alliance in Iraq, Hadi Al-Ameri, called for de-escalation and urged the Iraqi people to stop using violence and use dialogue as a path toward a solution.
The Iraqi Media and Communications Commission called on all local media outlets to avoid broadcasting false news and rumors, as well as straying away from taking any biased stances that go against the rules and regulations of broadcasting.
The main political leaders of Iraq agreed earlier in the month to work on a political road map that culminates with a solution to the impasse that has had a hold on the country for nearly a year, but key political leader Muqtada Al-Sadr was not present at the talks called for by Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi.
Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi met with top national officials and party leaders on Wednesday to discuss the political state of the country and the deadlock it is undergoing without the participation of the leader of the Sadrist movement.
Nearly a year after the country's general election, Baghdad is still running without a new government, prime minister, and president due to domestic disagreement about forming a coalition.
Leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada Al-Sadr said earlier today that he was quitting politics. In a tweet, Sadr announced his final resignation from politics and the closure of all his party offices.
Al-Sadr's supporters have been staging a sit-in outside Iraq's parliament for several weeks, after storming it on July 30 to protest the Coordination Framework's nomination of Mohammad Shiya Al-Sudani for Prime Minister.
