bridge in water

Streets Streaks - Eyewitness

Al Sarafiya Bridge that links Al- Kargh to Al-Resafa and over-looks the Adhamiya Cornish has been detonated and some parts collapsed into the Tigris River.

It is not sure what was the real work behind the collapse of the historic bridge – dates back from the first British invasion of 20th century. Eyewitness confirms two simultaneous explosions at two different points of the bridge that caused the havoc.

The bridge was an important and sole crossing for the Kasra and Adhamiya areas into the Khargh side.
