ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The Zakho independent administration celebrated its two-year anniversary on Monday by announcing the completion of several road projects throughout neighborhoods in the city.
During the ceremony, Gohdar Shekho, the town’s supervisor, revealed that Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani has continuously expressed his support for Zakho to implement infrastructure projects.
“90 percent of the main streets have been rehabilitated to conform to international standards,” said Shekho.
He also stated that the proposals for projects they previously submitted to the Council of Ministers have been fulfilled, though a few incomplete projects remain.

Zakho is a city located in the Dohuk province. It lies strategically on the borders of Turkey and Syria, which reinforces its reputation as a major trading hub. The city is home to several historical sites, such as the Zakho Citadel, a castle built in the 18th century, and the Shrine of Sheikh Adi ibn Musafir, a famous Sufi leader.
