Constantine or Sirta, which was built on a large rock, is considered one of the most beautiful Algerian cities. The seven bridges connecting its sides gave it a beautiful character that is not found in any other city of Algeria. An eighth bridge called the Independence Bridge or the giant bridge that exceeds its length 750 meters, and this project is in progress, and it will open to traffic soon, link the northern city bank with the eastern, and the noose will be lifted from the city which suffers from traffic congestion. Busy history
The history of this city makes it a cultural station that cannot be crossed. It has been famous since ancient times for its intellectuals, artists and scholars, as it was also a symbol of resistance against French colonialism. One of the symbols of the resistance against French colonialism, which was transformed in 2010 into a museum of cultural expressions, is the Haji Ahmed Bey Palace, which opened its doors in 1835, and it is currently undergoing a restoration process in preparation for receiving part of the activities that Constantine will be the capital of Arab culture. Ahmad Bey was Ahmed bin Muhammad al-Sharif bin Ahmad al-Qali, born in 1786, who died in 1850, and appointed “Paya” (Wali) to Constantine in 1826. He remained in this position until the year 1837, the date of the city’s fall in the hands of the French colonial forces. The Bey fought against the forces French colonialism, and was able to withstand seven years after the unification of large and powerful tribes, and fought against them two fierce battles, in the years 1836 and 1837, and the occupation forces resorted to several methods and tricks in order to eliminate this resistance, including tightening the screws on Constantine and cutting terms and preventing the arrival of ammunition and weapons to the forces Albay, despite the defeat of his forces, but Albay refused to surrender, He moved around the east and south, inciting the tribes not to submit to colonialism, trying to form a new army to fight the colonizer, and he continued in this way, until he was trapped in one of the forts, and he was forced to surrender, after he exhausted all means of resistance, and the French authorities put him under house arrest, Until he passed away in 1850. Preparations and visits
Jamal Foghali, the director of culture in the city of Constantine, is responsible for preparing for this large cultural demonstration. For this purpose, he visited last February the city of Tlemcen, which was the capital of Islamic culture to see what had been achieved in it of cultural projects. He told Al-Quds Al-Arabi that Constantine went to Tlemcen to learn from it, and to see what had been accomplished from facilities such as the Institute of Andalusian Studies, as well as the restoration process that underwent the old neighborhoods in Tlemcen, such as the neighborhood of Al-Mashwar, which witnessed the opening of an institute for the interpretation of traditional dress, she supervised It was former Minister of Culture Khalida Tome. Even if the officials in charge of the cultural sector do not express this explicitly, this institute came with the aim of protecting the traditional Algerian dress from extinction, and more importantly, protecting it from an organized “robbery” (in the words of Algerian officials) by neighboring countries that want to be attributed She has aspects of Algerian heritage and culture, which necessitated the opening of this institute, which contains a group of traditional Algerian women’s and men’s clothing and even children’s clothing, which each symbolizes a specific region. In Constantine, we met Jamal Fogali as he wandered around the city, to see the progress of the projects that will be hosted by the city of suspended bridges, stressing that the bridges themselves will be a place for Arabs and non-Arabs from the guests of Constantine, which connects the sides of the city, and the oldest is the Bab Qantara Bridge, which is the oldest Built by the Romans, the Turks restored it in 1792, then the French demolished it, and they rebuilt another bridge in its place, followed by the Sidi Rashid Bridge, which is currently undergoing a restoration process. It was designed by the French engineer Aubin Airlot, and it contains 27 arches, its height is estimated at 105 meters, and its length is 447 meters, It is considered the highest and largest stone bridge in the world, and also comes after Sid bridge M’Cid was designed by French engineer Ferdinand Ornodan in 1912, a suspension bridge, with a height of 175 meters and a length of 168 meters, the bridge, the highest in the city and in the African continent in general. All these bridges, in addition to the giant “Independence Bridge”, will be important milestones in the demonstration, because these bridges tell the history of Constantine and express the specificity of its topography and geography, which we have no example in Algeria. In the past, the city was fortified with seven gates, which closed after sunset, just as is the case with the gates of the capital. Among those gates is the Bab al-Hanasheh, which is located at the northern exit of the city and leads to the springs that flow into the basins located at the foot of the Sidi Massid bridge, as well as The gate of Qantara that connects the city to its southern bank, then the door of Jababiyya that leads to Sidi Rashid, the new door and the door of the valley, the same designations that carry the bridges of the capital.
Jamal Foghali emphasized that many workshops were opened in anticipation of this important cultural date for the city, including the restoration of the House of Culture, and many other facilities such as the regional theater, as well as the old neighborhoods in Constantine, which will be a place of pilgrimage to the city’s guests during this demonstration, and a library will also be built, A huge exhibition hall called “Zenit” is expected to accommodate more than 3000 spectators, in addition to establishing 6 cultural houses in 6 municipalities. Although the final program of this cultural demonstration has not yet been set, but according to the organizers, the program will include musical and theatrical performances, and the issuance of more than a thousand books in various fields. To this end, a reading committee was established to receive the proposed book projects in this framework, especially those that tell about the history of Constantine, which extends over three thousand years, and is also expected to produce three large plays to display on this occasion, as well as other theatrical performances, and also the completion of a museum dating For the Constantinople theater, it highlights the most important theatrical works produced in the city. It is also expected that it will open in Ahmed Bay Palace for Poetry and Music, another hall for plastic arts, and a hall for displaying foreign books. There will also be 20 cinematic films, 14 international forums, 8 major exhibitions, 11 visual arts exhibitions, and 15 festivals to be organized as a periodic period starting in the year 2015, and that the number of participants in this demonstration will exceed four thousand participants from Arab countries.
The photos were released by the Institute of Microbiology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences as part of the campaign to prevent and control the outbreak of the virus. International media and most of the social media reissued that image.
It is noteworthy that the first information about the virus began to come from the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of last December, and the scientists announced at that time that a new strain of the virus «2019-nCoV» that caused the outbreak of the fatal pneumonia.
The first outbreaks of the new coronavirus were launched from the fish market, and it is believed that the source was snakes from which the Chinese used to eat cooked meals. Scientists later confirmed that the virus is transmitted from human to human, and from animal to human.
As China stepped up measures to contain the virus, as it stopped public transportation in ten cities, closed temples, and quickly built a new hospital to treat the injured.
The World Health Organization announced on Thursday that the new strain of the Corona virus represented a health emergency in China, but it refrained from declaring a global health emergency.
Health authorities fear that the rate of infection will accelerate during the Lunar New Year holiday, as hundreds of millions of Chinese travel at home and abroad during the week-long holiday that begins on Friday.
As of Thursday, the National Health Committee said that the number of confirmed cases reached 830, while 25 people died, and most cases were in the central city of Wuhan, where the virus is believed to have originated in a market for the wild animal trade illegally.
Initial research revealed that the virus, which spread in Wuhan, had transmitted to humans from snakes in its latest stages of development, according to Reuters.
And China imposed on isolation of Wuhan, which has a population of 11 million people, and neighboring Huang Gang, where about seven million people. Most railway stations are closed, few trains stop in the city, flights have stopped, and checkpoints have been set up on major roads to and from the city.
On Friday, the official Changjiang newspaper reported that Wuhan is building a new hospital with 1,000 beds for treating people with the virus, to be ready by Monday.
HIV cases were discovered in Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the United States, prompting several airlines to suspend flights to and from Wuhan.
But the World Health Organization said on Thursday that it was “too early” to announce the new virus as a global emergency.
The Chinese health authorities have appealed to residents to avoid crowds during the Lunar New Year holiday.
On Friday, the Hubei Daily reported that ten cities in Hubei Province had stopped some public transportation in light of the outbreak of the Corona virus.
The cities of Chibi, Xiantao, Zhejiang, Xiangyang, Xianning, Huangshi and Enshi have suspended bus services, and Itchu has closed train stations.
The newspaper said that Zhejiang closed all public places except hospitals, supermarkets, farmers’ market, gas stations and pharmacies, and Enshi city closed non-open entertainment places.
And some famous temples in China closed their doors, such as the Lama Temple in Beijing, which people usually visit to offer offerings for the New Year, as of Friday.
Haikou, the capital of the Hainan tourist region in the south of the country, also closed tourist and cultural attractions such as libraries and museums.
Beijing has canceled large gatherings including two lunar New Year exhibitions, and the Imperial Palace (Forbidden City) closed the most famous tourist attraction in the capital, until further notice.
After careful and diligent follow-up by the Chinese health and preventive organizations, senior Chinese sources confirmed that China has reached the vaccine in tackling the Corona epidemic, and therefore the Committee for Disease Control and Prevention in charge of fighting the Corona Virus in Zhejiang Province, China, held a press conference in which the Deputy Director of the Public Health Directorate announced In the province, it was reported that an anti-retroviral vaccine was reached, as it confirmed that the vaccine was produced and tested, and that it has successfully passed large stages, and that the vaccine is now in the final stages of animal trials before it is soon used in humans. It also confirmed that the spread of the virus is under control, and the degree of spread has decreased in Chinese provinces, except Hubei, to the fourth level.
Commenting on the news, Wael Khalil Yassin, head of the Middle East Center for Studies and Development specializing in Chinese affairs, affirmed that China, from the first day on announcing and spreading the virus, monitored all its capabilities and capabilities with a view to fighting the virus, and considered this a war waged by the entire Chinese nation in defense of the safety of its people and the peoples of the whole world. Billions of dollars to that, in addition to bearing hundreds of billions of dollars in economic losses.
Yassin emphasized that China is determined to win this war, and today, on the thirtieth day of the declaration of a state of emergency, it announces that it has reached the anti-virus vaccine in a scientific miracle, since such action requires months and possibly years to reach it. And about the spread of the virus in the Middle East region, Yassin said we have been following this since the virus started, if it revealed nine cases in the United Arab Emirates and one case in Egypt until yesterday, all of which have links to the city of Wuhan, where the disease has spread strongly and all cases are under Control and I came to the Middle East before China declared complete closure and emergency. As for now, after receiving information about the spread of the virus in the Iranian city of Qom, I think that things may get out of control in the Middle East region, as the city of Qom is one of the most important holy places for the generous Shiite community. Perhaps the virus will spread quickly due to the density of visitors and I think that All countries in the Middle East, especially Iran, to take the necessary measures quickly by following the quarantine policy on any cases that might be exposed to the virus, and to work quickly to set up emergency committees to deal with the problem and benefit from China’s experiences in dealing with the issue.
And Yassin concluded, we hope that things are taken seriously and that the risks are taken with a national responsibility of everyone in the countries of the Middle East, and we hope that God will protect everyone and keep the virus away from all the people of the world.
