Iraqi National Accord, led by Ayad Allawi, warned Monday against the escalated arrests wave in Basra over political and tribal reasons.

“The government’s procedures towards Basra incidents should commit to transparency and protect human rights and freedoms,” The party’s spokesperson Hady al-Zalmy stated on Monday, calling on the government to protect the peaceful protesters from saboteurs and outlaws.

The wave of protests broke out in Basra Governorate in the last two weeks, due to poor public services and contamination of potable water.

Angry protesters attacked governmental buildings, offices of political parties’ headquarters, as well the Iranian consulate.
