Al-Sadr's office for Shafak News: The framework does not have a civilian audience, but will use the crowd
Earlier today, Monday, "Sadr Minister" Saleh Muhammad al-Iraqi called on supporters of the Sadrist movement to demonstrate in his governorate, except for Najaf governorate, in conjunction with calls for supporters of the coordination framework to demonstrate on the walls of the Green Zone.
Al-Adari told Shafaq News Agency, "Najaf is a holy and safe city, so there are no demonstrations."
He added that "the demonstrations this afternoon will be in the provincial centers and are in support of the green sit-in, and there is no other sit-in in the provinces."
He added that the talk that the Sadrists' demonstration is to protect Al-Kazemi is "incorrect and baseless."
Regarding the coordination framework demonstration scheduled to start this afternoon as well, and the warnings of a clash between the two sides, Al-Adhari said, “The coordination framework does not have a civilian audience, but will use the popular crowd, so there is no room for any civil war.”
The Iraqi street is awaiting what will happen to the situation in the capital, Baghdad, after counter calls from the leader of the Sadrist movement on the one hand, and the forces of the Shiite coordination framework on the other hand, to demonstrate in front of and inside the green walls.
The dispute is intensifying between the Sadrists, who are holding a sit-in at the Iraqi parliament's headquarters in the Green Zone, and the coordination framework that called on its supporters to demonstrate near it.
