“The United States is concerned about reports of escalating violence in Baghdad and calls for calm and dialogue,” John Kirby, the National Security Council’s White House information officer, said Monday.

This comes after 8 of Muqtada al-Sadr’s supporters were killed in Baghdad’s Green Zone and another 85 were injured, according to a new balance provided by medical sources to AFP, amid the chaos after the Shiite leader announced his definitive retirement from political work. .
