The worsening political crisis in Iraq has entered a new stage, after the ” Coordination Framework ” alliance, an ally of Iran, announced the start of an open sit-in for its supporters at one of the gates of the Green Zone in central Baghdad, parallel to the sit-in of the ” Sadr Movement ” supporters inside the region, amid conflicting interests and demands between the two parties. Which portends dangerous repercussions that may plunge the country into a cycle of popular confrontation.

 

Following the demonstrations by his supporters, yesterday afternoon, he directed the “coordinating framework” to start an open sit-in at the Green Zone gate from the side of the suspension bridge, stressing in a statement that the demands raised represent the demands of the “national majority in a free and dignified life and the establishment of a government of national service that provides a decent living for the people of All Iraqi people.

 

He pledged to “work hard and continuously to achieve the demands,” saying: “Most importantly, this country is managed only through dialogue and understanding between all its people, and no party can confiscate the will of everyone under any pretext or pretext.”

 

Today, Saturday, the Sadrist sit-ins entered their third week in a row, amid increasing tribal and popular support, which limited the “framework”‘s opportunities to form a government, which prompted him to use the street card, which may be the last card in this crisis.

 

Yesterday night, supporters of the “coordinating framework” worked to set up their tents and provide all the requirements for the sit-in, which may continue for an unknown time.

 

Only a distance of no more than a kilometer separates the two parties’ sit-in, and security forces are deployed between them to prevent any friction that may occur.

 

In the midst of this tense atmosphere, the security forces raised the state of alert and preparedness in anticipation of any emergency that might occur. An officer in the Baghdad Operations Command told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, on condition of anonymity, that “the sit-in of supporters of the tire increased the security tension, and that the instructions issued last night by the Supreme Command stipulated raising the state of readiness and preparedness, and the intense spread among the protesters.” from both sides, and to prevent any attempt to approach one side towards the other.”

 

He added that “the directives also stipulated tightening procedures in and around the Green Zone, and most areas of the capital,” stressing that “the current situation is under control,” and that “the tightening aims to protect the protesters on both sides and prevent opportunities for confrontation between them.”

 

“The Framework” MP Hanan Al-Fatlawi called in a tweet to the government to “secure state institutions, and not to disrupt the democratic path to reach a peaceful handover of power, so that it is not said that the biggest beneficiary of this disruption is the current government!”

 

On the other hand, the supporters of the “Sadr movement” continue their sit-ins and are waiting for the directives of their leader, Muqtada al-Sadr. Bilal Al-Zarkani, one of the sit-in followers of Al-Sadr, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed: “We continue to sit in, and the street is dominated by us, and popular support is increasing daily,” stressing: “We are committed to the peaceful sit-in, and we are waiting for Al-Sadr’s directives.”

 

The great popular momentum that the leader of the “Sadr movement” gained through the support of clans and large groups of people in all governorates gave Sadr’s support to ask the judiciary to dissolve parliament no later than the end of this week, warning of “other options” other than that.

 

The Iraqi politician, Izzat al-Shabandar, confirmed that the “framework” sit-ins changed the equation of “arms twisting,” and he said in a tweet to him: “After the coordination framework demonstration, the theory of arm-twisting in managing the conflict between the competing parties ends. Other than dialogue under the roof of the constitution remains a way to solve all problems.”
