"In a dangerous development, our security forces in charge of protecting the demonstrators near the barrier between Al-Khulani and Al-Tahrir Square were attacked with three assault grenades from the side of the demonstrators towards our security forces located near the separation barrier between Al-Tahrir Square and Al-Khulani Square, which resulted in the injury of a number of our security forces, who were evacuated to hospitals as our forces continue their duties while they are exposed to violent means ((Molotov, iron parts, metal balls)), the Command said in a statement.
The Baghdad Operations Command called on all peaceful demonstrators to stay away from friction and to observe the place of the demonstrations designated for them in Al-Tahrir Square because throwing offensive grenades is a terrorist act that requires response.
It also called on all to understand that the high restraint that the security forces are exhibiting is not weakness, but rather a commitment in front of our peaceful protesters. / End
