Al-Sadr called, in a tweet he posted on his Twitter account, to "extinguish the strife through a joint denunciation by the leaders of the blocs allied with him on the one hand, and by the elders of his clan on the other."
And he added, "And that the denunciation is not limited to accusing me of collaborating with Israel or accusing me of killing Iraqis, but more importantly, it's attacking the Iraqi security forces and accusing the popular crowd of cowardice and inciting sedition and fighting (Shiite - Shiite)."
Recorded audio leaks, transmitted by social networking sites, were said to be from Al-Maliki, which show an unprecedented attack by the latter against Al-Sadr and leaders in the Popular Mobilization, as well as an attack on parties and political forces, the army, the police and a number of countries.
Al-Maliki denied, in a tweet on Twitter, published last Sunday, the leaked audio recordings, saying: All counterfeiting and fabrications will not affect my relationship with building our armed forces and the Popular Mobilization, as they are both the protectors of the homeland and the safety valve of the political process.
