Three border crossings with Iraq, namely Chazzabeh and Shalamcheh in the southern Khuzestan Province and Mehran in the western Ilam Province, have reopened for exports on all weekdays as of Sept. 12. 
Previously, amid the spread of the new coronavirus, customs procedures were carried out only on Sundays and Wednesdays at most border terminals with Iraq, except for Khosravi in western Kermanshah province, which was open to trade during all weekdays, according to Rouhollah Latifi, the spokesman of the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, IRNA reported. 
Chazzabeh was the last of seven official border crossings between the two countries that reopened after about six months following the outbreak of coronavirus. At the beginning of its reopening in late July, 30 trucks were allowed to cross the border.
