Travel Warning WARNING: Ar Rutba remains extremely dangerous and is emphatically NOT safe for tourists. Those who are going there on business are strongly advised to consult their own government first, and have an armed guard with them.

Ar Rutba is a city in the Iraqi Desert. It is the westernmost town of any real size. Ar Rutba is a Sunni majority city and was most notably the site of a large part of the old Iraqi air defense warning system housing a number of military personnel there. The warning station was destroyed in the 1990-91 Gulf War.
