Iraq to start work on rebuilding Mosul's international airport

The airport in Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, is set to be reconstructed by 2024, officials said as Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi laid the project's foundation stone.

The international airport was severely damaged during the 2017 battle to liberate Mosul from ISIS and has not been used since the extremists overran the city in 2014.

During the inauguration ceremony, the prime minister said "huge efforts" were being made to rebuild the war-torn city five years after the battle to push ISIS out.

"The project to reconstruct Mosul's international airport is of strategic importance for our people which will provide job opportunities and will facilitate transportation," Mr Al Kadhimi said
