Gulf news reports indicated that Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi gave his urgent instructions to quickly withdraw the PMU armed factions from all their positions on the Iraqi-Saudi border.
According to UAE daily Al-Bayan, the Iraqi government has asked the Popular Mobilization Forces to immediately withdraw its factions from that area for fear of being targeted in retaliation for Saudi Arabia's targeting of its oil facilities, as well as for fear of accusing the Saudi factions of being behind the targeting of Aramco factories because they are loyal. Iran has the main culprit in bombing Saudi facilities.
The newspaper quoted a Defense Ministry official as saying that the Joint Iraqi Operations Command will be responsible for the distribution of responsibility for the security file with Saudi Arabia in the Iraqi army through the leadership of Anbar operations and the operations of Badia, Al-Jazeera and Middle Euphrates operations, as well as the command of the border guards to secure an extended border of about 800 kilometers.
According to the official, Abdul Mahdi asked the head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Faleh al-Fayyad, the army chief of staff Othman al-Ghanmi and the assistant commander of joint operations commander Abdul Amir Rashid Yarallah to ensure that Iraq does not embarrass any operation against its neighbors, especially after the mobilization of factions belonging to the crowd about 75 kilometers towards the Jordanian-Saudi border.
