    Hussein Jalloud, who lost his son after a struggle with leukemia, hopes to win a legal battle against the British company BP. Because he believed that his illness was caused by burning gas in the largest oil field in Iraq.

    Jalloud, who is burdened with debt, is requesting that the company, known as British Petroleum, pay him compensation to cover his son’s treatment expenses, including his chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, then the cost of Ali’s funeral, who died in April 2023 at the age of 21.



    Jaloud (55 years old) from his modest home near the Rumaila field in Basra Governorate in southern Iraq, told Agence France-Presse, “Ali is not compensated with money or more than money, but what I am asking for is my right.”

    He adds that his action against the giant British oil company "is not only for the sake of Ali, but also for the sake of the poor, the injured, and those who died in the region."

    On April 22, Jalloud sent a letter to the company explaining his claim, but if no agreement was reached or he did not receive a response that satisfied him, the second stage would include procedures before the court, according to the law firm [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/2555472075/%D9%87%D8%A7%D9%88%D8%B3%D9%81%D9%8A%D9%84%D8%AF %D9%88%D8%B4%D8%B1%D9%83%D8%A7%D9%87/ar/]Hausfeld & CO[/url], which represents the bereaved father.

    In 2022, in an investigation into the high risk of cancer near Iraqi oil fields, the British Broadcasting Corporation ([url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/120946/%D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%B3%D9%8A/ar/]BBC[/url]) documented the life of [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/3919053917/%D8%B9%D9%84%D9%8A %D8%AC%D9%84%D9%88%D8%AF/ar/]Ali Jalloud[/url], a football enthusiast, who was diagnosed with the disease in 2016.
    His father narrates that during his meeting with the doctor, the latter asked him where she lives. the family. When he answered that it was near an oil field and gas burners, he replied, “This is the reason why Ali got cancer.”

    BP did not respond to [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/123351/%D8%A3 %D9%81 %D8%A8/ar/]AFP[/url]’s request for comment, but it said in statements in response to the [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/120946/%D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%B3%D9%8A/ar/]BBC[/url] that it was never the operator of the Rumaila field, but rather it received fees in the form of allocations from crude oil in exchange for technical services it provided.

    She expressed "deep concern" about what was stated in the [url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/120946/%D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%B3%D9%8A/ar/]BBC[/url] report, stressing that she is "working with partners in Rumaila." She indicated a 65% decrease in gas flaring over the past seven years, and that work is continuing to achieve an additional reduction.

    Greenpeace - Middle East and North Africa warned in a statement last month about the Jalloud case that burning gas produces “a large number of pollutants linked to cancer, including benzene.”

    Every time Jalloud opens the door of his house, the first thing he sees are burning gas torches and thick black smoke, stressing that seeing on a daily basis what he holds responsible for his son’s passing creates a “sad feeling” in himself.

    In front of his house, children play football or ride their bicycles, unaware of the danger looming in the air.

    “Despite the difficulty and fear,”
    Jalloud, a father of seven children, was forced to sell gold jewelry and home furniture, and obtain a bank loan, in addition to borrowing from friends, to cover Ali’s treatment and then his funeral.

     
    He says that he is like others who live near the oil field, but their financial capabilities do not allow them to move elsewhere.

    The law firm representing Jalloud reported that according to Iraqi law, oil refineries are prohibited from being located less than ten kilometers from a residential area. But "evidence" in the Rumaila field indicates that gas burning takes place only five kilometers from residential complexes.

    Jalloud says, “We live here despite the difficulty and fear of this disease,” noting that he believes that many people in the region have contracted cancer as a result of burning gas.

    He added to Agence France-Presse, “The aim of this call (vs[url=https://www.alsumaria.tv/entity/120722/%D8%A8%D9%8A %D8%A8%D9%8A/ar/]baby[/url]) Not only on me, but reducing burning gas, providing medical supplies for patients free of charge, and helping the poor who are unable to move to another place.”
