The Iraqi Government, via the Iraqi Cabinet, has once again declared a 2-day mandatory period of non-working public holidays in Iraq, on Wednesday and Thursday, July 20-21, 2016, due to forecasted high temperatures.

Last year (29-Jul-2015 and 15-Jul-2015), the Iraqi Government had similarly declared 2 periods of one-off non-working public holidays in Iraq due to expected high temperatures.

Such weather related public holidays are routinely declared in Iraq (15-Jul-2015, 17-Jul-2013, 25-Jul-2012 and 01-Aug-2011). Neighboring Iran also regularly declares weather and pollution-related public holidays (03-Jan-2013, 03-Dec-2012, 29-Nov-2010, 22-Nov-2010 and 07-Jul-2009), while Jordan and Lebanon also sometimes declare weather-related non-working public holidays in Jordan and Lebanon, but usually for cold weather (18-Feb-2015, 10-Jan-2015, 07-Jan-2015, 06-Jan-2015).
