Raqqa’s reconstruction squeezed by a political vice

Mosul and Raqqa remain piles of rubble more than a year after these historic cities were liberated from the brutal grip of Daesh by local forces and the US-led coalition. A Marshall Plan comparable to the reconstruction programme for Europe funded by the US after World War II is needed for these and other mainly Iraqi cities devastated in the war against Daesh. But there is no contemporary Marshall Plan, US aid has been insufficient to clear the rubble and bury the corpses trapped beneath.
