Iraq is currently witnessing a series of assassinations after the victory of Saairun Allaince, which is led by the Sadrist Movement leader Moqtada al-Sadr, in the recent parliamentary elections.
Observers who spoke to the Baghdad Post said that commander of the Iranian Quds Force militias, Qasem Soleimani is responsible for the assassinations that take place in Iraq after the announcement of the Parliamentary elections results.
Soleimani has a notorious role in the Iraq-Iran War in the 1980s. In 2012, he fought beside Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad through thousands of terrorists sent to curb the Syrian revolution that erupted in 2011.
Moreover, he has a strong political clout in Iraq, Syria and other countries. It is widely thought he controls the political scene in Iraq.
On May 12, Iraqi people made their way to the poll stations to cast their ballots in the country's first parliamentary elections since the defeat of ISIS terrorist group in December 2017.
Saairun Alliance won the most number of seats in the upcoming parliament.
The observers added that the assassination of Sadrist movement leader, Ali Mahdi and Badr militia leader, Bashar al-Amidi confirms that Soleimani began to implement his plan to ruin Iraq.
They pointing out that Soleimani's main plan is preventing the formation of the next government in order to lead Iraq into a civil war that may last for a year or two.
The observers ruled out the possibility that the murder of Mahdi and Amidi are just accidental assassinations, especially at this sensitive time.
A source in the local government in Baghdad said that that Mahdi was attacked by armed gunmen after leaving his home, pointing out that the Sadrist leader died from his wounds at the hospital.
Observers expected that the number of assassinations in Baghdad will increase during the coming days after Soleimani's failure to communicate with Sadr in order to convince him to not to dismantle Iran Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS).
They added that the remarks made by the head of State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki should not be underestimated.
In his remarks, Maliki warned of the start of a civil war in Iraq if the next Iraqi government did not get the approval of Iran.
The situation in Iraq is unstable and complicated, as the country is witnessing the beginning of a civil war that was sparked by Qasem Soleimani.
