Dr. al-Shammari addressed his word to the crowds of visitors heading to the holy Karbala to “be one hand and one heart to protect the sanctities, adhere to the performance of the Hussayni rites, and be one heart against the Takfiris,” stressing on serving visitors from different provinces and from all over the world, as is the custom of Iraqis every year, and stressed on "the importance of adhering to preventive and health measures."
