    Economist: Reconstruction of liberated areas in Iraq is slow


     Translation / Hamid Ahmed 

    Adel Jumaili and his daughter sat next to the Tigris River in Mosul and given the debris that ended the city. There were two car bombs and two Molotovs where their house was one day private. The house was destroyed along with another 8000 buildings in Mosul when Iraqi forces recaptured the city from the hands of armed militants in July. 
    A hospital on the outskirts of Mosul was among the best hospitals in Iraq, but the expulsion of the Daash organization caused it to be settled with the land, and the same happened with the government complex, all the schools, the ancient medieval cemeteries and monasteries in the city. On the other hand, the precision bombing of the aircraft of the international coalition countries kept most areas east of Mosul intact, which made recovery work quickly, but the process of reconstruction of the western side of Mosul is more difficult.
    The battle has been fought from one neighborhood to another and the tactic of combing the battlefield has been used to destroy most of the Old City's areas. 
    According to Amnesty International's statistics, about 6,000 civilians were killed during the battles to liberate Mosul, one of the most liberated cities from the grip of the organization, but the sense of neglect is palpable in most areas that have been re-established. 
    To the southwest of Mosul, the city of Falluja is located. This is the first area in Iraq to have a presence in Iraq and was liberated by the joint forces before heading towards Mosul. 
    The city has not suffered damage to the size of the city of Mosul, but a year later its inhabitants still complain of federal government mistreatment. "It's like living in a big prison," says one resident.
    The caliphate has caused the destruction of all Sunni areas in Iraq, but the defeat of insurgents in Iraq will take place soon. On October 5, the Iraqi army announced victory in Hawija leaving a small area of ​​territory controlled by a push along the border with Syria. Beyond the provision of basic services, the Baghdad government has failed to reconstruct the liberated areas or reintegrate its people into its political system. 
    In contrast, foreign donors have provided some immediate solutions to the reconstruction effort. Drinking water has returned to Falluja with the lights still on for almost the most part. 
    On the other hand, Kuwait plans to host the reconstruction conference in Iraq early next year, and allocated the United Nations $ 1 billion to restore stability in the city of Mosul. In general, much work needs to be done in Mosul and elsewhere, but falling oil prices mean Iraq and the Gulf states lack financial resources.
    Since late September, the United Nations has spent only $ 24 million on the western side of Mosul, which has suffered the most damage. 
    "We may have done our best to make things easier in the old city," a UN official said. 
    On the other hand, the unemployment rates in Mosul and Fallujah are at their highest. Men with university degrees sweep streets or remove rubble for $ 20 a day. In Mosul, doctors and teachers have not been paid while waiting to resolve the authorities of the Baghdad government to verify their association with the organization or not. In Falluja, there are more than 4,600 police officers who have been separated after returning to the city. 
    However, the restrictions on movement at the Falcon checkpoint on the Fallujah-Baghdad road are very troublesome and time is too much to be avoided by many of those who intend to pass through it. Complaints about government blackmail are common.
    "If I want to bring more than three sheep to Falluja, I have to pay $ 10 for each head," said Ibrahim As'ad, a Katsab from the Fallujah market. "They are suffocating the city."
