An Iraqi who was “under the influence of drugs” shot dead his mother and three of his brothers at dawn on Tuesday in the south of the country, which has turned into an important crossing point for smugglers, according to an Iraqi police official.

The official said, preferring not to be identified, that “the young man is called Ali Habib, born in 1999, and under the influence of drugs, he killed four members of his family, who are his mother, brother and two sisters.”

He explained that the crime occurred after “Monday midnight, with a gun, in the south of the city of Kut, the capital of Wasit province, which borders Iran.”

The police have arrested the offender who was arrested and released in the past for drug use, according to the source.

According to Iraqi security authorities and Western diplomats in Iraq, Iraq has turned in recent years into a transit point for drugs coming mainly from Iran, Lebanon and Syria.

In December of last year, the Anti-Narcotics Directorate of the Ministry of Interior identified the governorates of Basra and Maysan al-Janoub, among the main areas where drugs are smuggled and consumed.
