The engineering staff of Imam Hussein Shrine has completed the first stage of al-Ra’s alShereef Gate basement project, which is an integral project to al-Hujjeh and al-Shuheda’ basement projects.

Ali al-Khefaji, project manager, said that the first phase of the project was achieved before the time assumed. He also said that the project area is 850 square meters which will be equipped with an air-conditioning system, electricity, surveillance cameras, alerts, an extinguishing system, and elevators.
