Iraqi Ports Receive 22 Ships This Week

Basra’s ports received 22 commercial ships from different countries this week, according to the Iraqi ports department’s relations & information chief on Thursday.

“Umm Qasr port received 17 ships, while Abu Fallous received 3 and al-Maaqal two ships,” Anmar Abdulmenaem al-Safi told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

The Shiite province of Basra, 590 km south of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, has five commercial ports and two oil ports: al-Maaqal, established in 1916 by the British forces and handed over to Iraqi authorities in 1937; and Faw, a small port on the al-Faw Peninsula near the Shatt al-Arab waterway and the Persian Gulf.
