Ministry spokesman Mosaab Al-Madras said that the supply cut affected Iraqs Dhi Qar, Maysan and Basra provinces. Although he did not give details of the debt to Iran, the unpaid bills are estimated at around $1 billion.

Can’t honestly think of 5 minutes of sleep I’ve ever lost concerning myself with the lives any dictator has seen fit to remove from their own countries.
5000 American lives to turn Iraq into an Iranian colony.
