Hour Al-Azim Fire Rising From Ashes Again Hour Al-Azim Fire Rising From Ashes Again

Smoke has risen once again from the burnt Hour Al-Azim Wetland on Iraqi soil, giving rise to speculations that the wildfire has reignited. 
After days since the start of a fire extinguishing mission in Iraqi part of the marshes, smoke has shown up as a probable sign of fire starting once again in the dried parts of the wetland, Zist Online reported.
According to Nazem Sobouti, governor of Hoveyzeh border city in Khuzestan Province, the blaze was not thoroughly put out, as the vastness of the affected area extremely complicated the operation.
"To make sure what exactly is the source of the smoke, satellite images should be investigated as soon as possible," he said.
