Smoke From Hour al-Azim Wildfire Choking Khuzestan

A huge wildfire that has been raging across Hour al-Azim wetland in the southwest of the country for around a week has spewed massive clouds of smoke toward several cities in Khuzestan Province causing breathing difficulties for their residents.  
Reportedly, the blaze is chiefly burning in the Iraqi part of the wetland and any occasional inrush through canebrakes of Khuzestan has been immediately extinguished by Iranian forces. 
However, the smoke has crossed the border into the city of Hoveyzeh and drifted over 115 kilometers to reach Mahshahr affecting Susangerd, Bostan and Ahvaz on its way.
