The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, on Tuesday, directed the Sadrist movement to withdraw from the parliament within one hour.
Al-Sadr said during a press conference, held in the Al-Hanana district in the holy Najaf, followed by the Iraqi News Agency (INA): I call on the demonstrators from the Sadrist movement to withdraw from the Parliament within one hour.
"I am very saddened by what is happening in Iraq, and I offer my apologies to the Iraqi people," Al-Sadr said.
Al-Sadr added: "The Iraqi is the only one affected by what is happening, as the homeland is now captive to corruption and violence, and we hoped that there would be peaceful protests, without using weapons, as the revolution marred by violence is not a revolution, and I am now criticizing the revolution of the Sadrist movement."
He continued, "I thank the security forces and the Popular Mobilization Forces that stood neutral, and I thank the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces."
He pointed out that “The spilling of Iraqi blood is forbidden.”
