Balad Ruz District (Arabic: بلدروز‎‎) is a district of Diyala Governorate, Iraq. Cities and villages include Balad Ruz, Mandali, Turki Village, Fatamia, Kurkush, and Taweela. The district is predominantly Shia Arab and, near the Iranian border, Kurdish. Villages south of the capital experienced ethnic cleansing of Shia by Wahhabi terrorists during the Iraqi insurgency.[1]
