Najaf, Iraq

Today a protest took a place in the city of Najaf, 100km south of Baghdad, by civilians demanding to volunteer and join the Iraqi forces. One day ago the government closed the recruitment centers in most of the cities because of the large number of volunteers. 
Grand AyatuAllah Ali Sistani made a call for Iraqis to enlist in the fight against terrorism by giving support to the Iraqi Army and urging iraqi men, who can carry a weapon and fight, to volunteer for the military forces to fight the ISIL. Other clerics from both Shia and Sunni sects had made the same call, which caused a large increase in the number of volunteers
In the interviews the people say they are ready to defend their country and fight the ISIL. Some called on the government to accept their applications and transport them to Baghdad to get training and join the forces .

First interview:

" We are ready to serve the army, we are going to fight for this country, our babies are 7 months old and they buried in Mosul, with our soul and blood we will sacrifice ourselves for you Iraq"

Second interview:

" We are ready to obey to the commands of the army in Mosul, in Iraq and even outside Iraq, to fight for our identity"

Third interview:

"I am against non believers, Jews, ISIS, Baath! I am a fighter volunteering to fight for my family, I will fight to death, I do not care about the Saudis or the Qatari's, I am a fighter, a fighter, a fighter"
