BAGHDAD, Iraq – Prominent Iraqi politician and civil rights campaigner, Mowaffak al-Rubaie, believes that the coalition forces have a legal and moral obligation to help rebuild Mosul, he said in an interview given in Baghdad on Tuesday. Rubaie explained “there is very little national support, the Arabic support is even lower, so we ask the international community to support Iraq” as well as the rebuilding of Mosul.

This is also comes as a member of the Baghdad Provincial Council, Saad Almtalbi, claimed that Mosul has been neglected by the international community after its liberation since Iraq does not have the means to support the city itself, during an interview given in Baghdad on Tuesday. 

Almtalbi spoke mainly about Mosul’s devastation after its liberation, and said that, since then, the city “has been neglected.”
