The Baghdad Operations Command was tasked Aug. 12 with protecting the Baghdad municipal team, which has been carrying out a major campaign to remove all encroachments on public property, roads and streets. These encroachments include buildings, walls and steps. The government’s Security Media Cell said in a press statement, “These encroachments have caused harm to citizens and impeded their movement in many vital parts in the capital, Baghdad. The campaign was launched on the directive of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.”
