The Department of the area between the two holy shrines of Imam Al-Hussayn and Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) launched a major cleanup campaign for the areas close to the two holy shrines as a first phase, which included removing large amounts of wastes that were accumulated after that the local government in the holy city of Karbala was unable to pay the wages of the cleaners for flimsy and illogical reasons.
The accumulation of the wastes began to threaten the health of Karbala citizens, prompting some of them to incinerate them, resulting the inhalation of toxins in the residential areas.
The department has harnessed its human cadres and its machines for the success of this campaign, as this scene is not worthy of the city of Imam Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them). This phenomenon is affecting the general appearance of the city in front of the visitors heading to it from different places, and from various nationalities and ethnicities. The mentioned department stressed in the same time that it is determined to continue other campaigns until a solution is found for this problem, which is now affecting the beauty of this holy city and its population in general and the visitors of the holy shrines in particular.
