Reuters reports that much needed repairs to the Mosul hydro-electric dam will be handled by the Trevi Group, an Italian based company.
Speaking at a press conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Rome on Tuesday, Italy’s Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said that the Trevi Group won the bid and is expected to sign the contract in the next few days.
According to Reuters, Daesh currently occupies the city of Mosul, located just a few miles away from the dam, and Italian forces will be sent to the potentially dangerous area to protect the work site.
