The neighborhoods and cities in Baghdad Governorate are witnessing dire humanitarian conditions and deterioration in services, the High Commission for Human Rights, revealed Monday.
In a press statement, a source from the High Commission for Human Rights said cities in Baghdad Governorate, particularly Abu Ghraib, require concerted efforts from government institutions especially after the devastation they had seen following the military operations and terrorist attacks.
The commission has called on the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers to establish a joint committee, composed of ministries and concerned authorities, to visit Baghdad’s cities and neighborhoods, he noted.
The committee will be tasked with identifying the problems facing these cities and attempting to find solutions to them that are in line with life’s economic and social requirements, the source added.
Baghdad has recently seen a series of terrorist attacks, the latest of which was on Monday.
Sources said the death toll from a twin suicide bombing in central Baghdad market jumped to 38 while the number of those injured became 105.
Earlier reports put the death toll at 26.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but it bore the hallmarks of the ISIS group.
