Shia leader Muqtada al Sadr's sudden resignation has plunged the Middle Eastern country into violence and chaos with no clear path out.
Shia cleric Muqtada al Sadr announced he would withdraws from politics, prompting hundreds of protesters to storm the Republican Palace and sparking clashes with security forces in which 12 people were killed.
Powerful Shia cleric Muqtada al Sadr tells his loyalists he is firm on his demands to dissolve parliament and hold early elections in the Arab country, which has remained without an elected government for nearly 10 months now.
Turkish Foreign Ministry said that “an inclusive and representative government” should be established without delay in line with the expectations of the Iraqi people.
The decision came after supporters of Iraqi cleric Muqtada al Sadr stormed the parliament building inside Baghdad's heavily fortified "Green Zone" for the second time in three days.
Demonstrators were protesting the recent nomination of Mohammed al Sudani as the official nominee of a coalition led by Iran-backed Shia parties and their allies.
The missiles fell in northern Iraq's Erbil, which hosts US-led coalition troops, officials say, but no casualties were reported.
The first rocket was shot down in the air by defence systems and the second fell in a square, damaging two vehicles, said Iraq's security forces.
The militant groups want a seat at the table, and are willing to apply whatever pressure it takes to ensure that they do.
Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al Kadhimi has said he was unharmed during the drone attack on his home in the capital of Baghdad.
Baghdad relies heavily on American military and economic aid, and the fall of Kabul demonstrates the inherent instability of US client states.
Multiple explosions and a gunfight in the Afghan capital’s heavily secured Green Zone killed at least eight and wounded 23.
