The Iraq Ghurayb Prison is huge.

This prison was and is under full control of Directorate General Security that is the DGS and also known as Amn al-Amm!

Moreover, more than 4000 prisoners have been executed there at the Iraq Abu Ghraib facility and or Prison back in 1984. In addition, like 122 prisoners have been executed at the Iraq Abu Ghraib prison back somehow recently in Feb 2000 more have been executed later, too.

This facility actually occupies like 270 acres over four kilometers of great security perimeters & twenty four guard towers. This prison is actually composed of different 5 distinct compounds each and even surrounded by specific guard towers & very high walls. This was constructed by British contractors back in 1960; the Abu Ghraib is like a great and virtual city within another city.
