#Iraq Daily Roundup: 6 Killed; Shepherds Attacked
By @A7_Mirza
"Investigating Sadr’s New Statement Regarding 25 October Protests

Every part of it smells like a coup against the political and democratic process of #Iraq, a process Sadr benefited of and helped it made in recent years..."
@A7_Mirza "#USA forces that crossed into #Iraq as part of a pull-out from #Syria do not have permission to stay and can only be there in transit, the #Iraqi military said on Tuesday."
"#USA Defense Secretary Mark Esper said, however, that #Washington aimed eventually to bring the troops withdrawing from #Syria back to the #UnitedStates."
"The #Iraqi military statement contradicted the #Pentagon’s announcement that all of the nearly 1,000 troops withdrawing from N #Syria are expected to move to W #Iraq to continue the campaign against #IslamicState militants & “to help defend #Iraq”.
“All #USA forces that withdrew from #Syria received approval to enter the #Kurdistan Region so that they may be transported outside #Iraq. There is no permission granted for these forces to stay inside #Iraq,” the #Iraqi military said."
"#Washington’s objective was for the troops not to remain in #Iraq. The aim isn’t to stay in #Iraq interminably, the aim is to pull our soldiers out & eventually get them back home.”
-Mark Esper-
"#Esper said the details had not yet been worked out on how long the #USA troops would stay in #Iraq and he would be having discussions with his #Iraqi counterpart on Wednesday."
"It is unclear whether the #USA troops will use #Iraq as a base to launch ground raids into #Syria and carry out air strikes against #IslamicState #terrorists."
"The #USA troops that recently withdrew from #Syria will have 4 weeks to leave #Iraq, the #Iraqi Minister of Defense Najah Al-Shammari told The Associated Press on Wednesday."
"According to Al-Shammari, the #USA troops that withdrew from #Syria do not have permission to remain in #Iraq; however, the country will give them a four-week-long grace period for ‘transiting’ purposes."
"Al-Shammari made the remarks following a meeting in #Baghdad with visiting #USA Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who arrived as #Iraqi leaders chafed over reports the #USA. may want to increase the number of troops based in #Iraq, at least temporarily.
"While the #USA has a military presence inside of #Iraq, #Baghdad has been wary about letting more #American troops stay in the country for purposes of deterring #Iran in the region."
#Baghdad Warns #USA Troops Withdrawing from #Syria Not Entitled to Stay in #Iraq

"#raqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi unveiled on Thursday more reforms, warning that the resignation of the government without constitutional alternative will lead to chaos."
"A senior Iranian political analyst warned that the recent violent unrests in #Iraq & #Lebanon are being misused by certain foreign states to turn the people's peaceful protests for restoring their legal rights into a ground to attain their ominous goals."
"The protest in the regional states have 2 dimensions:
🔴is the protests of average citizens & ordinary people & unions for their living difficulties & expenses;
🔴Foreign hands can be seen & they want to misuse the rallies of people to their own benefit."
"...People in #Lebanon have held peaceful protests & the govt has heard the people's voice but a series of norm-breaking images were displayed & slogans were shouted in the protests that turned them into political rallies"
-Seyed Afqahi-
"Thousands of protesters have gathered in the streets of #Lebanon since mid October, blaming the faltering economy on widespread corruption a& abuse of privileges among politicians. The rallies were peaceful at first but suspiciously turned violent."
"🇱🇧PM al-Hariri stated that the cabinet has approved a raft of economic reforms, including halving ministers' wages, & agreed on the 2020 budget in a bid to tackle fiscal crisis & put an end to the nationwide demonstrations that have entered the fifth day"
"Meantime, in #Iraq, Grand Ayatollah Seyed Ali Sistani warned against the infiltration of agents with malevolent intentions into public protests in the #Arab country, calling upon demonstrators & security forces to keep anti-occupation rallies peaceful."
“Don’t let those with vicious intentions to infiltrate among you and attack security forces,” the official representative of Ayatollah Sistani in #Iraq Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalai said on Friday, conveying a message of the senior cleric."
"al-Karbalai added that public protest is a right enshrined in the Constitution, & warned that, however, protests should not be used as a pretext for vandalizing public properties or injuring security forces."
"In the first round of public protests 3 weeks ago, analyses revealed that 79% of hashtags about protests in #Iraq on Twitter originated from #Saudi & only 6% were from #Iraq, in a stark contrast w claims that the demonstrations were popular & spontaneous"
"#Iraq has been rocked by a new wave of public protests, and different sources and media activists belive that unemployment and lack of proper public services are the main causes of the recent unrest in the Arab country."
"A leading Arab newspaper said the #UAE & #SaudiArabia have for several months been plotting to launch a coup against #Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul #Mahdi."
"Since Abdul Mahdi was entrusted with formation of a cabinet in #Iraq & the al-Fatah & Sa'eroun coalitions gained the most seats in the #Iraqi parliament, attempts have been made by Abu Dhabi and Riyadh to overthrow Abdul Mahdi's government."
"The coup plot was designed in the #USA, the #UAE & #SaudiArabia, adding that the #UAE was the center for masterminding the scheme, and a number of officials... have been responsible for planning the coup."
"It added that #SaudiArabia has invested a sum of $150mln in the planning and implementation of the coup project, and said the plot has been implemented by #Iraq's civil society which receives the financial support of the #USA embassy."
"The newspaper reminded the remarks made by former #Saudi Ambassador to #Baghdad Thamer al-Sabhan who had said that #Iraq will be different in #October, saying that al-Sabhan had cautioned that a major incident would rock the country's political process."
"#Iraqi Interior Ministry Spokesman Khalid al-Muhanna said police & security forces have not resorted to the use of force or firearms against the country's protestors during the recent rallies."
"Baghdad al-Youm news website quoted al-Muhanna as saying on Saturday that the #Iraqi security forces safeguarded security of protestors & places in which protest rallies were held & did not use ammunition or force against protestors at all"
"He added that during the protests, several #Iraqi security forces were wounded and even killed by some individuals who attempted to misuse the peaceful protests and hurled stone and fired shots at security forces."
"Meantime, #Muhanna noted that heavy damage has been inflicted on government buildings, schools and public places, criticizing the protestors who misused the peaceful protests and attacked government centers in #Baghdad."
"The Arabic-language al-Akhbar paper wrote on Saturday that it has gained access to a security document which shows the #USA mission's role in organizing a secret formation to add fuel to the flames of unrests in #Iraq last month."
"According to the newspaper, the #USA embassy has formed a high committee of protests, which coordinated field activities during the protests a& the embassy provided it with intelligence & a number of politicians & government workers supported it."

Washington, Tel Aviv, Riyadh Taking Advantage of #Iraqis' Demands
By @r_u_vid
😬#ISIS leaflet dated October 15th, in which militants urge prisoners who fled from camps in northeastern #Syria to take part in #Iraqi protests.
@r_u_vid "As anti-government unrest in #Iraq continues, authorities have ordered a counter-terrorism force to help restore security in #Baghdad. The turmoil is the latest political crisis to hit #Iraq after the #USA-led invasion in 2003."
@r_u_vid In 2003 there were 1.5 million Chaldeans & other Christians in #Iraq. Today only 250,000 remain. Yet, many in Western media, govts, think tanks want more war not less. #StopEndlessWars
@r_u_vid @southfronteng By @AlSuraEnglish
#Iraqi Counter Terrorism Forces deployed in #Iraq's smaller
provinces after masked gunmen began firing on security forces near protestors. Proximity between security forces, gunmen and protestors has many fearful of large death tolls.

@r_u_vid @southfronteng @AlSuraEnglish A video is gone viral in social media that shows how some unknown gunmen are scaring people by shooting at them & causing chaos. As can be seen in the video,the person shoots at somewhere & record it.

Are they spontaneous or planned?
@r_u_vid @southfronteng @AlSuraEnglish The very "peaceful" protesters burned two men alive in an ambulance !!
@r_u_vid @southfronteng @AlSuraEnglish #Iraqi Defence & Interior Ministers stand next to AAH leader Qais Al-Khazali during funeral of Wisam Aleyawi who fought #ISIS terrorists but was killed by violent mob in #Maysan
@r_u_vid @southfronteng @AlSuraEnglish These armed criminals are not protestors, they are hijacking the protests to settle scores or undermine the protest movement.
@r_u_vid @southfronteng @AlSuraEnglish WHO BENEFITS FROM CHAOS IN #IRAQ?

#Iraq has been rocked by days of nationwide protests and there are growing indications that ‘foreign hands’ have been trying to sabotage the peaceful demonstrations.
@r_u_vid @southfronteng @AlSuraEnglish "A senior member of the #Iraqi parliament said the #USA has killed #ISIS ringleader Abu Bakr #al_Baghdadi to prevent disclosure of secrets related to the #terrorist group which was created by #Washington"

With Al Bagadai’s death, maybe it’s time for some reflection? Why did ISIS/Al Bagdadi emerge? The US invasion of Iraq. Where did they start organizing? The US prison Camp Bucca in Iraq.
