He added: "Despite the difficulty of accessing raw materials to the project site, due to the preventive curfew, the high temperatures, and the lack of working staffs, as the department staffs are working simultaneously in other projects to create lobbies in both the province of Al Muthanna and Karbala. Despite all of this, and thanks to the blessings of our master Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), we are moving forward to complete the project as soon as possible. "
Brihi explained: "The work of cutting the iron parts is carried out on site after the necessary measurements have been taken for this part, which consists of (56) single rooms, in addition to that, there are works that are conducted in parallel in other parts of the project, such as the preparation works for the ground, wooden works, infrastructure and sewage pipes and others.
