Iraq – Eyewitnesses: Basra explosion is a wake-up call to reassess the security measures
Today, Tuesday, an explosion rocked the center of Iraqi’s southern city of Basra, leaving deaths and injuries. According, eyewitnesses, the explosion that occurred, today, in Basra Governorate, is a security breach since it has rendered Basra a risky city, prompting authorities to reassess the security measures in place. Iraqi’s Security Media Cell said that four people died and four others were wounded in a motorcycle blast in Basra, according to the initial outcome. The explosion came as a shock, especially since the oil-rich city of Basra has not seen any explosions in recent years, since the ISIS defeat in 2017.
