TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_In a statement on Thursday, the group said the decision was taken after al-Kadhimi, currently the director of Iraq's National Intelligence Service, requested to have a meeting with the group to explain his position on the assassination.
The formation of the committee was decided during the meeting, the statement said, adding that “we requested that the work of the committee be done with complete transparency”.
The US assassinated General Soleimani, alongside a number of his comrades, including deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilisation Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, in the Iraqi capital in early January.
Iran responded a few days later by firing salvos of missiles at two US-occupied bases in Iraq’s western Anbar Province and Kurdistan regional capital, Erbil.
The Iraqi parliament also responded by voting in favor of a bill demanding the expulsion of all foreign military forces led by the United States from the country.
