Nineveh Governorate, in the north of the country, whose center is the city of Mosul, suffers from significant damage to its infrastructure, buildings and markets, as it was destroyed during the war against ISIS.
Although years have passed since the Iraqi government regained control of it, the reconstruction process is still facing great difficulties.
The city, which Baghdad announced to regain control from ISIS more than 3 years ago, is occupied by piles of rubble left over from the war, a war that destroyed more than 8,000 homes and thousands of cars, so that reconstruction has become one of the most complicated files in Iraq.
The Corona pandemic constituted an additional obstacle that hindered reconstruction efforts, along with bureaucracy and delayed international support, according to observers. But the city, which was one of the most important metropolises in the world for many centuries, resists destruction, and its people make their way back in the wreckage.
