How the angry people on Maliki’s government became Saudis want to destroy the Shrine? [video]
The good news is Sadr halted all Mahdi Army’s activities for six months.
The bad news is the halt included attacks on the occupation forces.
Reported by nahrainnet, Al-sadr issued a warning to the occupation forces from using this decision to harass Mahdi Army leaders or to further attacks on the Sadrists.
Sadr also announced three days of mourning and the closure of his offices grieving the souls of martyrs — visitors last Monday and Tuesday.
Who’s behind the clashes?
Najaf governor accuses “Saudi Arabia” of involvement in the events of Karbala which intended to divide the Shiites creating a Shiite-Shiite fighting.
The Interior Ministry said:
The fight in Karbala wasn’t spontaneous but there are outsiders behind it, succeeded to create sedition.
A leaked document published by “non14” [Karabala based news] shows that the police warned about a fight is going to take place in the city in details five days before it occurred.
At least one website said:
Guards tried to prevent angry people from shouting slogans condemning the Maliki government.
Which I bet this is the exact story of what happened in Karbala, and this video proves it, you will see angry people throwing stones on the police, and smashing police cars, but they are unarmed.
