We women of Tadhamun condemn the persisting practice of arbitrary arrests by the Iraqi security forces. We condemn their arrests of women in lieu of their men folk. These are 'inherited' practices. We are alarmed by credible media reports of the Green Zone government’s intentions of executing hundreds of Iraqi men and women.

ERBIL-Hewlêr, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — Of the oil exploration and export profits from an oil contract between American Exxon Mobil Corporation and Kurdistan Regional Government, President Barzani is said to be collecting 30% net profit, according to a news article published by the Kurdish opposition “Kurdistan Post” paper.
Hussein Shahristani, the Iraqi oil minister, warned Exxon Mobil of trying to seal any secret deal with Kurdistan Regional Government. “Should Exon Mobile continue to overlook our demands, all its effective contract privileges will be rescinded in Basra Province”, as well, warned the oil minister.
Hamid Ali, a high-ranking KDP official in Duhok city, in Iraqi Kurdistan, revealed that President Barzani had urged the afore-cited oil company to continue its exploration and production operations and disregard Hussein Shahristani’s irrelevant rhetoric.
Myriad colossal foreign oil corporations have resumed operating in Iraqi Kurdistan. The revenues collected from oil production and export remains vague.

While the point itself may not have more than Abbasid houses under the ground, it is adjacent to the palace of Sur Isa, the remains of which can be seen in the photo. While the initial construction might or might not touch the palace, accompanying activities will certainly spread over it.Sur Isa can be identified with the palace of al-Burj, built by the
Abbasid Caliph al-Mutawakkil, probably in 852-3 (Northedge, Historical Topography of Samarra, pp 125-127, 240). The palace is said to have cost 33 million dirhams, and was luxurious. Details are given by al-Shabushti, Kitab al-Diyarat.
Samarra was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO at the end of June. The barracks could easily have been built elsewhere, off the archaeological site.--
