Baghdad reopens 600 streets
(MENAFN) Resulting from renovating and reopening streets by authorities, Baghdad's life conditions have improved in many ways.
Director of Baghdad Operations Command Media Office Brigadier General Qasim Atiya told "Asharq Al-Awsat" that at least 600 main streets and exits in Iraq's capital and its surrounding neighborhoods have been reopened.
Thousands of concrete blocks that were suffocating the capital were also removed, he said.
"In recent months, we have removed 281 control and security checkpoints in Baghdad and 50 percent of the remaining security points are being removed," said Atiya.
Meanwhile, on erecting a fence and security gates, an announcement made earlier by the Command to secure the capital, Atiya pointed out that "construction is underway in this direction, and we have benefited from the concrete blocks that were lifted from the streets in securing vital intersections."
