BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – Iraq has made the decision to resume flights to Syria’s Damascus International Airport for the first time in eight years.

The Syrian Ministry of Transport said in a statement on its website that “the Ministry of Transport in the Syrian Arab Republic welcomes the Iraqi Airways’ decision to resume its flights to Damascus International Airport, and we await with pleasure to receive the first flights on Saturday, May 18th, 2019.”

In its statement, the Syrian Transport expressed its ‘readiness’ to receive Iraqi Airways’ business and cooperation.

A source from the Iraqi Airways announced last Monday that their airlines will resume its flights to the Syrian capital, Damascus, after stopping its flights in 2011.

Syria and Iraq have been working to improve their diplomatic and economic relations, despite a turbulent few years after the fall of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

Furthermore, both countries are now working to reopen the strategic international highway that links Baghdad and Damascus; this will be a major boost to both economies.

US brutality against Iraqi civilians as documented and exposed by Wikileaks has turned all Iraqis, Syrians and other oppressed people against the evil of US and its Zionist masters. Since 1991, illegal invasion of Iraq and inhuman sanctions, over 1.5 million Iraqis, mostly women and children have been killed by indiscriminate bombings and deprivation of essentials like medicine, food and water and complete deliberate destruction of civilian infrastructure. The US cowardly war criminals are committing the same crimes against civilians in Syria and Yemen, not to mention Zionist holocaust of Palestine.

Iran, Iraq, Syria and even Lebanon share a same history, religion, culture and strategic outlook and need to integrate more closely at all levels. The Tehran to Beirut superhighway project would also help. It will also check US and Zionist agenda of regional conflicts and destabilization. This is very positive and long overdue development.
