AMMAN — Chairman of the Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (CARC) Haitham Misto said on Monday that regular flights between Amman and Baghdad are continuing, stressing that “so far, there is no change” to the date of these flights, according to Al-Mamlaka TV.

Misto added that “Jordan is monitoring the current events in Baghdad, after the Iraqi authorities imposed a curfew in all Iraq’s governorates”.

On Monday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates called on Jordanian citizens in Iraq to avoid places of gathering, and to abide by the instructions issued by the Iraqi authorities.

Twelve protesters were shot dead in the Green Zone in Baghdad on Monday, and 270 others were injured, according to medical sources, amid the chaos that ensued after the Iraqi Shiite leader Muqtada Al-Sadr’s announcement that he was withdrawing from politics.

Due to the current chaos, the Iraqi Joint Operations Command announced on Monday a curfew in all Iraq’s governorates, starting from 7pm on Monday and until further notice. اضافة اعلان
