Sadr orders Baghdad Brigade to prepare for the defense of the capital

Shia cleric Muqtada al -Sadr on Sunday, in a statement received by Beyond The Levant, called on his “Baghdad Brigade” of Saraya Peace Brigades (formerly Mahdi Army) to prepare for the defense of the capital, as the Islamic State penetrated dangerously close to the city and nearby airport.

He also called on the current government to”alert to the danger posed to Baghdad rather than to collect money. I wish the Iraqi army and valiant security forces success defending Baghdad and every inch of Iraq.”
