The head of the Kakiyeh tribe in Iraq, Sheikh Sardar Agha, criticized the continued attacks on the villages of Kakiyeh for attacks, and kidnappings.

He called on the Prime Minister to provide the protection of the villages of Kakiyeh, which has become vulnerable to targeting and threatens to empty them of the population because of the large number of kidnappings and killings and threats that affect the people by the remnants of Daesh.
