ISWNews Analysis Group: After the deadline set by the Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq resistance group for the Iraqi Prime Minister to release one of the group’s commanders, Qasim al-Araji was handed over to Hashad al-Shaabi forces by Iraqi intelligence.

After a rocket attack by resistance forces on the Green Zone of Baghdad, one of the commanders of Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq was arrested by order of the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa al-Kadhimi. This caused the special forces of Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq to be poured in different parts of Baghdad last night in response to this action.

But finally, with a 48-hour ultimatum to the Iraqi Prime Minister and mediation by the Iraqi parties, Qasim al-Araji was released and tensions eased.
