MP Sarwat calls for keeping army away of politics

Parliament's Security and Defense committee member Abbas Sarwat on Sunday called for keeping the army away of politicization and for returning the forces to their places outside the cities.

Sarwat said he hopes that the military institution will take into consideration the values, morals and principles of Iraq in its dealings with the people.

"The tasks of the army are not within the walls of the cities, but the circumstances [including] terrorist ISIS gangs entering [the cities] compelled the [army] forces to move its mission to cities," he continued.

The army celebrates its 98th anniversary on Sunday. A military parade was held on Sunday at the military academy headquarters in the presence of the commander-in-chief of the armed forces Adil Abdul Mahdi.
