Iraq’s Ministry of Transport has reopened the Haditha-Baiji-Baghdad freight railway line which was extensively damaged during the war against ISIS.

A press statement by the Ministry said that line was used to transport goods and aggregate from the Al -Qa’im district in the western region to Haditha district, and then to Baiji in the eastern region, and onwards to Baghdad.
