Al-Sadr: Civil peace in my country will not be shaken
Shafaq News/ The leader of the Sadrist Movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, stressed on Wednesday that "civil peace" in Iraq will not be affected, indicating that his Movement will not be a party to any conflict.
Al-Sadr said on Twitter, "Civil peace in my country will not be shaken. I only care about the safety of the people and the safety of Iraq."
"Restraint and prioritizing public interests over private ones…We are the resistance to occupation, terrorism, and normalization, and we will not reach out to any Iraqi."
Al-Sadr concluded, "We will fight corruption by the law, and a prime minister, neither eastern nor western, to restore Iraq's prestige and strength."
