Al-Kadhimi began the meeting, according to a statement by his office, by noting that terrorism had proven their failure to gain a foothold as a result of the blows they received at the hands of our heroic armed forces, so they resorted to a path of meanness and defeat by targeting innocents at random, as the cowards have always condemned.
And he said: I offer my condolences to our sons, our brothers and our people in Sadr City, and let the families of the martyrs know that retribution will pursue terrorism in every hole and every hiding place, and the terrorists will not be safe on the land of Iraq.
He explained that the criminals, with their desperate attempts, wanted to create chaos, after detonating the electric power transmission towers, they went to indiscriminate killing and bombing among the safe people.
Al-Kadhimi directed that any commander or officer who is proven to have failed to perform his duty be held accountable, investigated and referred to the competent court, stressing on our security forces to remain the eye that never sleeps for the security and safety of Iraqis, and to mobilize intelligence work with all its energies, and with precise preemptive strikes, in order that terrorism has no sanctuary or incubator anywhere.
He also directed the redistribution of holding sectors for the security forces in the capital, Baghdad, in a way that increases the readiness of our units and their ability to confront terrorist and criminal schemes.
Al-Kadhimi also directed to provide urgent assistance in all its forms to the families of the victims, and for health personnel to mobilize all their energies in order to treat the injured../End
