“Anniversary of the war in Iraq: Congenital malformations and cancer on the rise in Iraq’s devastating Basra and Fallujah. (Huffington Post, U.S.)
Ten years after the start of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, doctors in some Iraqi cities are seeing an unusually high number of cancer cases and birth defects in children. Scientists believe that this increase is directly related to the use of depleted uranium and white phosphorous for military attacks on Iraq during the invasion of foreign troops.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary, Democracy Now! spoke with Dahr Jamail, Al Jazeera reporter, who recently returned from Iraq. Jamail recounts meeting Dr Samira Alani, a doctor in Fallujah with a focus on birth defects.
The doctor said that now in Fallujah often newborns are born with massive birth defects, immune problems, massive central nervous system problems, heart problems, skeletal disorders, children are born with two heads, babies are born with half of their internal organs outside their body, “Cyclops” children literally with one eye – really, really, really horribly creepy types of birth defects.”
