Recent floods that swept
through Iraq's southern provinces could uncover the remains of an Iraqi soldier
who was considered missing during the 8-year Iran-Iraq war.
The remains of Abdul Amir Al-Gharibawi were found by a farmer in Maysan city, a security official said.
The remains of Gharibawi who
was lost in 1982 during the Iran-Iraq war was handed to the local police in the
province, the source added.
The Iraqi Human Commission for Human Rights announced in mid-2018 receiving the remains of 127 soldiers who died during the Iran-Iraq war, noting that the teams are still searching for more remains of the missing soldiers.
Iraq and Iran fought an eight-year war (1980-1988) that left hundreds of thousands of victims from both sides.
