The Senior Official of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine; Sayed Ahmad al-Safi, affirmed that Iraq is now safe after it was threatened, and it was able to fail all the plans aiming its collapse, targeting its entity, its present and future, thanks to the sacrifices of the people of Iraq and their response to the Fatwa of the sacred defense launched by the supreme religious authority in Najaf.
These were the important points stated in the speech delivered by his eminence during his meeting with the guests of the 14th World Cultural Festival of the Martyrdom's Spring in the Host Restaurant of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him).
He also said: "Iraq has made great sacrifices in order to preserve its unity and protect its land and its sanctities, where thousands of martyrs of the security forces, the popular mobilization and tens of thousands of wounded made sacrifices for this principle. Thank God they were able to miscarry all the bets on this country and achieve victory against the ISIL terrorists. After this, Iraq is proud to push away a great danger to all the countries of the region, and the Iraqi people are now strong and optimistic despite all the risks and circumstances surrounding it. Thus, welcome to your second country, Iraq, which hopefully its next days will be better, and we wish to meet you again."
