He blamed the group of the former governor of Najaf Adnan al-Zarafi, as well as outlaw Yameni, Shirazi and Serkhi currents for setting on fire the Iranian consulate in Najaf, adding that the man who took money from the UAE had taken part of it and distributed the rest among other groups involved in the burning of the Iranian consulate.

The United Arab Emirates has been one of the most important Arab countries that have provoked the protests since the beginning of social protests from the first of October and resorting to violence.

Some Iraqi and regional security and media sources and evidence suggest part of the incitement of virtual networks to incite social protests in Iraq are directed from the United Arab Emirates.
