The port town of Al-Faw had acquired infamy due to its strategic position at the entrance of the Shatt al-Arab, leaving it vulnerable to attacks during the many wars fought in the Middle East. Destroyed extensively in the Iraq-Iran war, it was rebuilt in 1989, and has received special attention from the Saudi government in a bid to bolster its history. Many finds have been made at the site recently, including the remains of a stone temple and an altar, along with the remains of 8,000-year-old Neolithic settlements.
