IRNA said it was one of the country’s most important air force bases, built deep underground, housing fighters equipped with long-range cruise missiles.

Since the first month of the new government taking over the administration of the country, the exchange rate of the US dollar against the Iraqi dinar witnessed an upward rise, to exceed 1,500 dinars per dollar before the end of last year .
Since the beginning of this year, the exchange rate of the dollar has witnessed sudden jumps, as it crossed the threshold of 1,600 dinars to the dollar, and it remained fluctuating during the month of last January in the square of 1,600, but during the month of February, the dollar crossed the barrier of 1,700 dinars, and in some days it approached 1,800 dinars per dollar.
