Site description The second in the chain of large haurs stretching from Haur Sa'adiyah in the north to Haur Al Hammar in the south. The haur receives overflow from Haur Sa'adiyah to the north and from the River Tigris to the east (Georg and Savage 1968).
Key Biodiversity The site has not been ornithologically surveyed, but is likely to be of major importance given its size and proximity to wetlands of known importance.
