We had a tour in the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, in which we were briefed about the expansion and roofing project as well as the communication and surveillance cameras system, which we have found very creative and a source of pride especially that these projects are implemented by Iraqis, and this gives us a excellent impression about this city and its holy shrines, unlike the image given by some of the media."
