Member of Shiite sect survives assassination attempt in Basra  
BASRA, July 16 (VOI) Sayyid Bahaa Fadhil Jamal al-Den, member of Basra provincial council, said that his brother, a prominent figure of al-Ikhbariya Shiite sect in Basra, on Wednesday noon survived an assassination attempt, when unknown gunmen opened fire on him in old Basra city.
He added that his brother and his brother's driver were wounded and admitted to the hospital.
"Unidentified armed men driving a modern car opened fire targeting Sayyid Aqeel Fadhil Jamal al-Den, at Bashar Street intersection, in the center of old Basra city," Sayyid Bahaa Jamal al-Den told Aswat al-Iraq - Voices of Iraq - (VOI).
"My brother and his driver were wounded and admitted to hospital," he said.
"A combined Iraqi army-police checkpoint was nearby when the incident took place, but it did not interfere," he added.
"There are many repeated security violations; a matter that invites us to reconsider the accomplishments of Saulat al-Forsan (Knights Assault) security operation," he noted.
Al-Ikhbariya Shiite sect that was founded around four centuries ago has around 100 thousand followers in Basra.
Basra, the oil-rich city, lies 590 km south of Baghdad.
