The Ministry of Water Resources celebrated the opening of a major land reclamation project in Husseiniya, which is located on the East of the Euphrates River. Karbala's governor, Prof Amal Al-din Mejid Al-Herr, was also in attendance.
A press statement issued by the ministry said that the project included a network of irrigation channels and drainage channels. An area of 9000 acres of farmland is being fed from the 'Kemalia' channe, which takes its water from the Husseinieh river.
