Al-Anbar received 150 billion Iraqi Dinars [$125 million] in revenues from its border crossings in the year 2010, according to the chairman of provincial council’s investment commission.

“The sum of 150 billion dinars was received in returns from the three border outlets of Turaybeel [Tirbil, Tarbiel] (pictured), al-Tanaf and Arrar for 2010 and was transferred to the province’s budget,” Muzher Hassan told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

“The provincial council has laid plans for projects in the health and service areas, namely sewage and electricity, as part of the sums to be obtained by Anbar from border outlets revenues,” he added.
