Foundation Stone laying ceremony to rehabilitate Mosul Airport

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi laid the foundation stone for the project to rehabilitate Mosul Airport, which still suffers from major destruction despite the passage of five years since the expulsion of ISIS members from the city. This step comes after a long period of hardship for the airport, which is over 100 years old, having endured a no-fly zone imposed on Iraq in 1990, its use by American forces after 2003, its handover to Iraq in 2008, and its complete destruction during the battles to retake Mosul from ISIS. Babylon Media covered the ceremony, capturing the significance of this milestone in the airport’s rehabilitation and the broader efforts to rebuild Mosul.
