From “crystal” to “zero one” .. “soft terrorism” kills the youth of Basra

In the corner of the room of a house abandoned more than a year ago in Basra, southern Iraq, Haidar is lying as usual, blowing smoke from a perfume bottle he emptied of its contents and turned it into his own tool for using crystal, saying that this bottle has become his "only companion now", as he lives alone in his family's home. The one who was abandoned by everyone, his little brother, sister and elderly mother left the house for fear of being harassed and sexually harassed.


Haider turns to another person after using the crystal, where he tried several times to harass his mother and his little sister, and with the repeated attempt, the younger brother was confronting him.

As for his older sister, a soldier in the Iraqi army, he also left the house to live in a slum, fearing that his wife and daughters would suffer a similar fate while he was away from home.


This story is among hundreds of stories that the competent authorities have confirmed that its main causes are the escalation of drug trafficking rates and consequently the high rate of drug users, as well as shocking numbers of suicides, rapes and murders due to drug abuse.
