ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi asked the military in Nineveh province on Thursday to provide better security for roads in the area particularly one connecting the Yezidi city of Shingal to Mosul.


"The Joint Operations Command should make all roads secure in order to facilitate traffic on the Shingal-Talasqaf-Batnaya-Mosul road,” said Abadi’s office in a statement. “It should also intensify efforts to clear mines in different areas."


The Iraqi prime minister also issued several other decrees, including the transportation of local farm products into the city of Mosul without going through customs.


According to the statement from Abadi’s office, banks have been instructed to provide business loans, victims of terrorism or military operations will be compensated and two bridges destroyed during the war with ISIS will be rebuilt.

 

Abadi has met with provincial delegates from Mosul and he said in his statement that he listens to everyone "not just those who protest."
