Al-Fatah: a "third party" might be behind Al-Kadhimi's assassination attack
Shafaq News/ The head of al-Fatah alliance, Hadi al-Ameri, said that only a "third party" benefits from the assassination attempt that targeted the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa al-Kadhimi, earlier on Sunday.

In a press release issued earlier today, Sunday, al-Ameri called on the security forces to investigate the circumstances of the attack and reveal the perpetrators as soon as possible.

Al-Ameri warned that a "third party" has executed the drone attack on the Prime Minister's office.

A drone laden with explosives targeted Al-Kadhimi's residence inside the Green Zone, downtown the Iraqi capital Baghdad, early on Sunday in what the Iraqi military deemed an attempted assassination, but said al-Kadhimi escaped unhurt.

A source told Shafaq News Agency earlier that the residence of the Iraqi Premier was targeted by a rocket. 

The attack, which security sources said injured several members of al-Kadhimi’s personal protection team, came after protests in the Iraqi capital over the result of a general election last month turned violent.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack on al-Kadhimi’s residence in Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and foreign embassies.

Supporters of Iran-aligned armed groups which have grown their power in parliament and government in recent years have protested the results of the October election.

Demonstrations by their supporters turned violent on Friday when protestors pelted police with stones near the Green Zone, injuring several officers.

The police responded with tear gas and live gunfire, killing at least one demonstrator and wounding hundreds, according to security and hospital sources in Baghdad.
