Iraq | Funds not there to repair terrorist damage to historic city of Mosul, UNESCO told

Devastated by a war with ISIS that ruined its cities and left millions homeless, Iraq does not have the capacity to rebuild without major support from the international community, the country’s culture minister Fariyaad Rawandizi told The National on Monday.

A Unesco conference held on Monday in Paris, which focused on reconstructing the northern city of Mosul, was attended by dozens of potential donors. Numerous Iraqi cities were reduced to rubble in the three-year occupation by ISIS and the ensuing battles to wrestle them back.
