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.
There are very few sites to see in Ar Rutbah. It's primarily a place for those interested in the Iraqi Desert experience.
