The political bureau of the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades said on Monday that the Iraqi government has failed to provide even the most basic and simplest services and to deal with crises.

Iran Press/Middle East: According to the Al-Mayadin TV network, The political bureau of the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades stated, "We must not remain silent in the face of insults to the dignity of our citizens and our compatriots. The government's policies in the management of cases have no destiny other than failure."

"Attacking the demonstrators is a clear violation of the constitution," it added.

Iraqi riot police cordon off the heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and foreign embassies, as hundreds of Iraqi demonstrators gather to protest against the US military presence in Iraq.

Iraqi security forces attacked the protesters, injuring and arresting a number of them.
