Rapid Reaction Force to be deployed in Basra

Iraqi Security Forces

Iraqi government intensified its security measures, as it has ordered the deployment of Rapid Reaction Force in the city of Basra.


The Rapid Reaction Force will intervene in case of emergency, an officer said.


This comes as sources said the situation in southern Iraq is getting out of control as angry protests are taking control of the provinces. Activists expressed concern the IRGC militia exploits the ongoing turmoil to spread terror and hamper oil transfers.
