BAGHDAD-MAP

Traffic gridlock gripped the Iraqi capital as government forces closed off many streets at the center of Baghdad.

Many of the streets that are around the fortified Green Zone which houses government buildings and diplomatic missions were closed during the morning.

Al-Taghier journalist said that the officials had closed roads in order to prepare for a military parade to celebrate recent Iraqi victories against ISIL in Fallujah and the Qayara airbase, which is at the south of Mosul.
