Sunni officers under huge pressure on sectarian grounds

Ministers of interior and defense

A lot of Sunni officers at the Ministries of Interior and Defense are facing huge pressures on sectarian grounds as well as blackmailing, an informed source told the Baghdad Post.

He added that hundreds of Sunni officers at the Ministries of Interior and Defense, from different ranks, left their jobs following threats to physically liquidate them despite the fact that they joined the security institutions after 2003.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Interior suspended promoting all officers above the rank of major, giving no reason for the decision.

This decision had been issued upon the directives of Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi.
