The spokesperson for the Commander-in-Chief of the Iraqi Armed Forces, Major General Yahya Rasoul, revealed yesterday evening, Sunday, that the attempt to assassinate the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, “was meticulously planned” and that the Iraqi forces are ready to respond to any attack.
Rasool said in an interview with Al-Iraqiya TV that “the Iraqi forces of all kinds are present everywhere and are fully prepared and ready, and it is our duty to protect the people, the constitution and Iraq, and that the Iraqi aircraft have flown to reflect the readiness to respond to any military attack.”
The military spokesman explained that the two planes that targeted Al-Kazemi’s residence in the Green Zone in Baghdad flew at a low altitude, which prevented them from being detected by radar.
The military spokesman ruled out that ISIS gangs were behind the attack on the home of the Iraqi prime minister, adding that “what happened is not the work of ISIS, and it is a very dangerous act. If it were to succeed, Iraq would be in a dangerous situation today and a sea of blood.”
“The armed forces deal with events wisely,” he added. We have accurate accounts and we do not want to drag the country into fighting and bloodshed and return to the zero point, and we will take revenge on the perpetrators according to Iraqi law, because the failed attempt to assassinate the prime minister sent negative messages to the world.”
