The government plans to reopen the Green Zone to traffic

he federal government plans to reopen the gate of the Green Zone in front of the movement of vehicles in order to ease the traffic congestion and the movement of vehicles within the capital Baghdad.

Some observers attribute the reason for traffic congestion in Baghdad due to the closure of the Green Zone as it is the center of the capital and linked to many of its regions.

On October 5, 2017, Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi opened the Green Zone to traffic.

Abadi’s office said at the time that “the vehicles of citizens came on the roads that opened their corridors, where the Prime Minister received the first cars upon entry.

The opening included two entrances to the first area, which is the road linking Al-Mansour to the Damascus intersection, Al-Zawra bridge and the legislative intersection towards the suspended bridge. The second entrance is the Baghdad International Fair and Zaytoun Street towards the celebration square, leading to the suspended bridge.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi revealed the existence of a plan by the government to reopen the gate of the Green Zone again in front of traffic vehicles.

“The reason behind the closure of the Green Zone after the opening of a few days in 2015 to the movement of parliamentarians, which caused great traffic congestion because the number of deputies 328 deputies, who attend the parliamentary sessions of nearly 200 deputies and the time of entry and exit is huge And cause chaos in the street and this may expose the region and the deputies to danger, whether a terrorist act or otherwise. ”

“In addition to the entry of demonstrators to the Green Zone, which exposed the existence of the state to the danger and any terrorist act occurs and becomes a disaster because it protects all countries and parliament and the government,” noting that “the government has a plan to re-open the Green Zone completely until the street near the Presidency of the Republic is under study either The opening of another gate for MPs or finding a solution to prevent any violations.

It is noteworthy that the Green Zone, is the common name of the international neighborhood in central Baghdad, set up by the coalition forces International that invaded Iraq in 2003, an area of ​​nearly ten square kilometers, and took the name of “green” with the establishment of the Iraqi interim government, one of the most military sites fortified in Iraq The presidential palace, the headquarters of the intelligence service and the Republican Guard, as well as a number of embassies, the most important American, and many foreign organizations and agencies, and the Hotel Rashid, and residential communities and others.

The Green Zone was closed by US forces after entering Baghdad in the wake of its invasion of Iraq in 2003.

The area, which covers an area of ​​about 10 square kilometers, the headquarters of the Iraqi government and the parliament and the presidency of the Republic, and a number of embassies headed by the United States and the British and were considered by Iraqis as a symbol of the American occupation.

The area was under US administration until 2009 before it was handed over to the Iraqi side.

The new procedure provides limited access to this vast area of ​​the Iraqi capital, as most of its streets need to carry a special badge, but this will attract people and ease traffic congestion in Baghdad.

Before the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, the area housed the palaces of Saddam Hussein and other regime officials and was open to Iraqis.

For years, the Green Zone has been the target of attacks, surrounded by high concrete walls and protected by tanks and armored vehicles and by elite special forces and security.
