Iranian Speaker's Advisor:
Senior Advisor to the Iranian Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian warned that Washington, Riyadh and Tel Aviv have hatched plots to take democracy and independence from Iraq.

RNA - Amir Abdollahian made the remarks on his twitter page on Thursday, reacting to the recent unrests in Iraq.

“The triangle formed by the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel regime is now targeting democracy, independence and sovereignty in Iraq,” he added.

"The ISIL disguised in the clothes of Iraqi people and under the full support of embassies of the US and Saudi Arabia in Baghdad is set to disrespect [the holy cities of] Karbala and Najaf,” Amir Abdollahian wrote.

 “For no doubt, enemies’ tricks will backfire on themselves,” he underlined.

In relevant remarks on Saturday, the leader of Iraq's Asaib Ahl al-Haq group, which is part of the country's Popular Mobilization Forces or Hashd al-Sha'abi, said Washington and Tel Aviv were members of "a third party" behind many deaths during the recent unrest.

Qais al-Khazali told Dijlah TV, an Amman-based Iraqi satellite television channel, that the committee set up to investigate the violence is merely an administrative body, and thus cannot identify the “third party” responsible for the killing of demonstrators.

He stressed that “Israel and US have a great role in the third party".

Also, on Wednesday, a senior Iraqi legislator claimed that the UAE and Kuwait, supported by the US, had sent huge sums to their affiliates in Iraq in a bid to derail protest rallies in the country and overthrow its government.

"The Persian Gulf littoral states and the US have sent money to Iraq to support the organizers of the protest rallies," Mohammad al-Baldawi, a representative of al-Fatah coalition in the Iraqi parliament, told the Arabic-language Baghdad al-Youm news website on Wednesday.

"These countries are behind the operations to kill the activists and demonstrators and they aim to topple the Iraqi government," he added.

Al-Baldawi noted that certain Persian Gulf Arab littoral states, spearheaded by the UAE and Kuwait, and supported by the US send huge amounts of money to the political figures and mercenaries in Iraq to shift the course of demonstrations towards their objectives through stirring chaos in the country.
