Shafaq News/ Iraq's Joint Operations Command (JOC) canceled the level C security alertness that followed the demonstration of the Sadrist movement's supporters in the Green Zone, a security source revealed on Tuesday.
A source told Shafaq News Agency that JOC decided to restore the regular security status that preceded yesterday's events.
Supporters of Muqtada al-Sadr, carrying guns and driving tuk-tuk vehicles, began withdrawing from Baghdad's Green Zone after the influential Shia cleric called on them to end their actions.
Al-Sadr has called on his supporters to withdraw from Iraq's parliament during a news conference in his headquarters in Najaf's al-Hannana.
Al-Sadr instructed his supporters to withdraw within the next 60 minutes, adding that not even a sit-in or peaceful demonstration would be allowed.
Al-Sadr apologized to the Iraqi people after nearly two days of violent clashes.
"This is not a revolution [anymore] because it has lost its peaceful character," al-Sadr said in a televised address.
"The spilling of Iraqi blood is forbidden," he added.
