ERBIL — Iraqi authorities are planning to release the results of investigations into the recent assassination attempt against the country’s Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.
Mushraq Abbas, a political advisor to Kadhimi, wrote on Twitter that videos, photos, and other documents will be released to the public in the coming days.
Without accusing a certain faction, Abbas called the perpetrators “terrorists”.
The announcement came after powerful Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr warned that he will intervene if the state will refuse to reveal the results of the investigations.
Sadr said the attack had targeted the prestige and sovereignty of the state, and that the perpetrators should not have a chance to survive.
On November 7, three explosive-laden drones targeted the residence of Kadhimi in Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone, leaving at least six personal protection guards of the premier injured.
Preliminary investigations said two of the drones were shot down while the third exploded and caused significant damage to the building.
The Iran-backed Shia militias of Asaib Ahl Al-Haq and Kataib Hezbollah were the factions suspected to be behind the attack from early hours after the assassination attempt. However, the groups rejected any involvement.
