Badra, Iraq

Badra (Arabic,بدرة, Kurdish Bedre) is a town in south eastern Iraq near the Iraqi-Iranian borders in Wasit Governorate. Its population is a mixture of Arabs, Turkmens and Faili Kurds.

Badra is located next to the site of the ancient city Der.

Badra is also located on top of the Badra Oil Field which, after a discovery well was drilled in 1979, has remained unexploited until 2011.
