Radio Free Iraq (in Arabic إذاعة العراق الحرّ, transliteration Izaa'at al 'Iraaq al Hurr) was a 24-hour radio station broadcasting in Arabic from Prague, Czech Republic, and directed to Iraq and the Iraqi diaspora. It started its broadcasts on 30 October 1998[1] and was part of the programming of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), which is funded by the United States Congress.

The service ended on July 31, 2015,[2] after what RFE/RL characterized as a merger with Radio Sawa Iraq,[3] part of the Arabic-language Sawa service that replaced the Voice of America Arabic service.

The radio station also ran an online edition which had regularly updated news and reports in Arabic.
