The Iraqi Ministry of Construction and Housing announced on Tuesday the launch of three housing projects across the country.
Al-Shorfa reports that the projects, which are expected to cost a total of 125 billion Iraqi dinars ($107 million), are intended to alleviate the country's housing crisis.
The projects comprise 900 housing units, schools, markets and health centres.
Government contracting companies have started work on complexes in al-Diwaniyah, Maysan and Anbar.
