(IraqiNews.com) Kirkuk – On Tuesday the military wing of Badr Organization in Kirkuk threatened to cut Baghdad-Kirkuk road to protest against the reduction of al-Hashed al- Shaabi fighters’ salaries.

The military wing’s official in Badr Organization Atef Najjar said in an interview, “The central government did not pay the salaries of al-Hashed al- Shaabi fighters for three months, and this month it only paid 500,000 dollars instead of 750,000 for salaries,” pointing out that, “al-Hashed al- Shaabi will not accept this amount and will return it back to the government.”

Najjar added, “The heroes of al-Hashed al- Shaabi will cut Tuz Khurmatu-Baghdad road until they get their complete salaries,” indicating that, “The government should stop its arbitrary measures against the resistance groups and al-Hashed al- Shaabi, and it should lessen the salaries of ministers, deputies and presidencies, not the salaries of our heroes in al-Hashd al-Shaabi.”
