Najaf: The US military’s use of depleted uranium in Iraq has led to a sharp increase in leukemia and birth defects in the city of Najaf, and panicked residents are fearing for their health. Cancer is now more common than the flu, said a report by Russia Today. The city of Najaf saw one of the most severe military actions during the 2003 invasion.
Speaking on the rooftop of her house instead of her laboratory, Dr. Sundus Nsaif says the city has seen a “dramatic rise” in cancer and birth defects since the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq .
