Iraqi Kurdistan | UN team visits historic garrison, citadel to plan restoration after war damage

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Cultural preservation specialists have been brought in by the United Nations to evaluate and discuss options for rehabilitating Kirkuk’s Qishla and Citadel – two important heritage sites in the heart of the ethnically diverse city.

The Qishla, built in 1863 as an Ottoman era army garrison, used during the winter months, lies “in a state of near collapse today,” the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) said Monday.
