RAMALLAH, Sunday, November 07, 2021 (WAFA) – President Mahmoud Abbas condemned today the failed assassination attempt of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi.

The President expressed his solidarity with the brotherly people and leadership of Iraq, and affirmed his rejection of any attacks targeting the security, stability and unity of Iraq.

He affirmed the State of Palestine's condemnation and unequivocal rejection of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations everywhere.

Earlier today, Iraq’s military said Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi survived an assassination attempt after a drone laden with explosives targeted his residence in the capital, Baghdad.

Al-Kadhimi escaped unhurt, but security sources told Reuters news agency that at least six members of the prime minister’s personal protection force were wounded in the attack.
