Shammari: Within hours, story al-Saadi will be revealed


Secretary-General of the opposition Front Fadi al-Shammari said that the case of General Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, which occupied public opinion "is over".

Al-Shammari tweeted on his Twitter account saying: "Within hours will be the curtain on the story of Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi. Let us prepare for a new story with heroes and events."

He added, "Iraq remains so on and overturns its people with the North and the right."


The Iraqi premiership on Friday announced it was decommissioning Staff Lieutenant General Abdulwahab al-Saadi, who had served as the deputy head of the elite Counter-Terrorism Service, without giving a reason. 

As a top commander in the CTS, which was created and intensively trained by the US, Saadi helped recapture Mosul from the Islamic State group in 2017 and is considered by many Iraqis to be a national hero.
