Iraq Alerte de sécurité

Kataeb Hezbollah calls on demonstrators to gather in Basra on September 16; avoid all protests as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 16/9/2020, 12h00 until 18/9/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Baghdad). COUNTRY/REGION Basra

Event

A demonstration has been called for on Wednesday, September 16, in Basra to protest against the newly announced peace deal between Israel and the UAE. Unconfirmed sources indicate that the Office of the Islamic Resistance, Kataeb Hezbollah, has called on supporters to gather from 16:00 (local time) in Delegations Street.

Localized disruptions in the vicinity of the protest and a heightened security presence are to be expected. Clashes between security forces and demonstrators cannot be ruled out. Further associated demonstrations over the issue are possible over the near term.

Context

Under a US-brokered agreement, Israel and the UAE announced on August 13, that the two countries will normalize diplomatic ties. The deal has been fostered by shared concerns over Iran's influence in the region.

Advice

Those in Basra are advised to closely monitor the situation, avoid all protests and large public gatherings, anticipate disruptions to transportation and services in areas affected by demonstrations, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

The security environment in Iraq remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas with proper security protocols in place, other areas should be considered strictly off-limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to all travel.
