Minister Forecasted Partial Opening of Najaf Airport

Minister of Transport Aamer Abduljabbar said on Thursday that Najaf airport will be partially opened in the coming 48 hours.

The Najaf council threatened last Monday (April 12) to declare civil disobedience and to close all the local departments if the central government refused to reopen Najaf’s international airport within 3 days.

Intelligence reports stated that there was a plot to use an airplane taking off from the Najaf International Airport to launch a terrorist operation in the style of 9/11 according to news reports.
