Security, Politics
(Voices of Iraq) - The Sunni Accordance Front said on Thursday that an Iraqi army force raided the office of the front's head Dr. Adnan al-Dulaimi, threatening to kill him along with bodyguards. "A force from the governmental Guards, 6th Division, 5th Brigade, 3rd battalion, raided the office of Dr. Adnan al-Dulaimi on Wednesday evening and threatened to kill the office guards," the Accordance Front said in a statement received by the independent news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI).
The statement added "the force commander threatened to kill the office guards, blow up the building, and behead Adnan al-Dulaimi." Adnan al-Dulaimi is the head of the Sunni Accordance Front which holds 44 parliamentary seats out of 275. Dulaimi's office is located in al-Adl neighborhood in western Baghdad.
"It is not the first time the force commander along with his troops commits acts of such a kind for they tried some time ago to assassinate al-Dulaimi when they shot at his motorcade," the statement claimed. The statement held the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki responsible for the safety of al-Dulaimi and his office, house and bodyguards. No comment was so far made by the Iraqi army on the Front's claims.
