Iraq Closes Trebil Border Crossing

By John Lee.

Iraq has closed its Traibil [Turaybeel, Tirbil, Tarbiel, Trebil] border crossing with Jordan "until further notice", due to the ongoing anti-government protests and the deterioration in security in Anbar province, a provincial police source told Xinhua.

The closure is expected to negatively affect commercial traffic between Iraq and Jordan which has been active lately, mainly due to what the report describes as the paralysis of commercial movement between Iraq and Syria.

The crossing is important for Anbar province and its closure would have a significant impact on business and markets in the area.
