( Baghdad – On Tuesday the Head of Anbar Provincial Council, Sabah Karhut, called the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to interfere and stop the abuses inflicted on the people of Fallujah by some factions of al-Hashd al-Sha’abi militia, while demanded the withdrawal of al-Hashd al-Shaabi forces from the city.

Karhut said in a brief statement during a press conference followed by, “Some violations had been inflicted on the citizens who fled towards the security forces in order to protect them from ISIS members,” stressing that, “The displaced people of Fallujah were subjected to violations including torture and harassment by some unruly factions of al-Hashd al-Shaabi, resulting in the death of some of them.”

Karhut called Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and the local government to withdraw al-Hashd al-Sha’abi forces from al-Anbar and replace them with al-Hashd al-Ashaeri militia, while affirmed that Abadi has to form an interrogation committee to open an immediate investigation into those incidents.
