This city is near Al Mutla ridge, where the twisted and rusty remains of an Iraqi column line the roadside. The Iraqis, fleeing Kuwait City and loaded down with loot, were sitting ducks for Allied warplanes in the closing hours of the war. Also in the city is the Red Fort, a mud-brick structure where Kuwaiti and British troops defeated an invading army from Saudi Arabia in 1920. 20 mi/30 km west of Kuwait City.
