BAGHDAD (Dispatches) – Saudi Arabia and the UAE have hatched plots to foment tensions in Dhi Qar province in southern Iraq to help the terrorists in Nasiriyah Central Prison (al-Hout) to escape, an Iraqi lawmaker has disclosed.
Abdul Amir Ta’eiban told the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website on Saturday that Riyadh and Abu Dhabi are striving to stir tensions and make the ground prepared for unrests and rallies in Dhi Qar province to release the terrorists imprisoned in Al-Hout.
He also said that keeping the terrorists in al-Hout prison has heavy expenses for the Iraqi government.
A senior official of the powerful Badr Organization in Iraq warned in May that Washington and Riyadh had hatched new plots to reactivate the Daesh terrorist group in the country.
Mohammad Mahdi al-Bayati told al-Ma’aloumeh that the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are returning the fugitive Daesh members from Syria to Iraq.
"The U.S. and Saudi Arabia’s current support for Daesh is similar to their support for the terrorists in 2014 and there are many concerns about the return of the Daesh and their terrorist attacks in Salahuddin, Kirkuk and al-Anbar,” he added.
Also, in June, Iraqi millionaire businessman and politician Khamis Farhan al-Khanjar al-Issawi disclosed Saudi Arabia’s interference in the internal affairs of Iraq.
