The Fact-Finding Committee on the events of the Green Zone held its first session in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on Wednesday.  For 18 hours, Monday and Tuesday, Baghdad and other provinces witnessed protests, clashes and security chaos, after the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, announced his final retirement from political work, then the clashes stopped and life returned to normal with the efforts of local parties.  In a statement, the committee announced the formation of sub-committees to move in a field-based manner to investigate the facts in the events of the Green Zone in central Baghdad.  The committee is headed by National Security Adviser Qassem al-Araji, and was formed under the guidance of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.  The media office of the National Security Adviser said in a statement that the committee held a meeting headed by Al-Araji and with the membership of representatives from the Army Chiefs of Staff, Joint Operations, the Intelligence Agency, the Intelligence and National Security Service.  The statement said that al-Araji directed the members of the committee to the necessity of the investigation to be impartial and that bias "in the investigation of the facts to Iraq only."  And on Monday, clashes erupted between the militants of the Sadrist movement and the security forces in the Green Zone, leaving at least 23 dead and 380 wounded, according to medical sources, amid an atmosphere of security chaos in the center of the capital and other provinces.  The clashes ended after the Sadrist movement and the Coordination Framework Alliance (close to Iran), the two largest Shiite forces in the Iraqi arena, called on their supporters to withdraw from central Baghdad.  Al-Sadr's announcement Monday of his retirement from political work is the ninth of its kind in nine years, and it came two days after he proposed that all political parties step down to put an end to a political crisis that has been going on for more than ten months.  The Sadrist movement rejects the nomination of the coordinating framework, Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, to head the next government, and demands the dissolution of the House of Representatives and the holding of early elections.  Differences between the political forces have prevented the formation of a government since the last elections on October 10, 2021.
