The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by His Excellency Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari, Director General of the Foundation, and His Excellency Suleiman Soylu, Minister of the Interior of Turkey.

The city is considered an integrated service targeting 50,000 people and includes 5,000 apartments, community facilities, a mosque, a shopping mall, 3 schools, and a medical center.

The infrastructure of the city will be developed through the construction of roads, public parks, electricity grid and reservoirs to provide a decent livelihood for displaced people and Syrian refugees and support their resilience.
