Adil Abdul Mahdi

Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi seeks dismissing Mostafa al-Kadhimi, chief of intelligence, and replacing him with close figure to the Sadrist Movement, sources said.

Abdul-Mahdi will develop the intelligence apparatus in a way that conforms to security challenges that face Iraq, the sources, who are close to the premier, added.

Abdul-Mahdi, according to the sources, could nominate a figure close to the Sadrist Movement, so it takes part in resolving the security issues.
