ERBIL — Kurdistan’s Deputy Parliament Speaker Hemin Hawrami condemned the attack on Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) office in Baghdad and burning of the Kurdistan flag by Hashd al-Shaabi supporters.
Earlier the day, dozens of Iran-backed militias of Hashd al-Shaabi stormed KDP’s 5th branch in the Iraqi capital and set fire to the building. They also took down the Kurdistan flag and raised the Hashd al-Shaabi flag on the representative office of the Kurdish party.
Footages also showed the Hashd al-Shaabi supporters walking on the Kurdistan flag before burning it.
“I strongly condemn the cowardly attack on KDP’s 5th branch in Baghdad by some rouge elements of the PMU & burning Kurdistan flag,” Hawrami wrote on Twitter.
“[The] Iraqi government is required to do practical steps to reign in these rouge elements who are a threat for coexistence and living in peace,” he added.
BasNews previously shared footages from the scene, showing Iraqi police forces standing by and not intervening during the attack.
