2 June 2017 23:11


The Iraqi popular forces continued their advances against ISIL near the country’s border with Syria and captured more villages and regions, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.

The Iraqi forces engaged in fierce clashes with ISIL South of al-Ba’aj region, and recaptured the village of al-Khibra.

Later on, the Iraqi contingents took control of the nearby al-Sakaar housing complex, killing and wounding a number of terrorists.

Meanwhile, the leadership of Iraqi Popular forces announced that his forces would start operations to secure the entire border with Syria; if successful, this major military endeavor would cut the regional caliphate in half and significantly hamper its logistics and maneuverability.

In addition, Commander of the Popular Forces Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes announced that the forces would handover the entire border region to Syrian and Iraqi border guards once retaken.

Field sources reported on Wednesday that the Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces) was ready to fight against ISIL along with the Syrian Army troops to free the strategic al-Tanf border-crossing.

The sources said that following deployment of forces at borders with Syria the Hashd al-Shaabi was coordinating with the Syrian army to jointly storm ISIL and free al-Tanf border town and region.

The sources further said that the army soldiers engaged in tough battle with terrorists in Syria’s Badiyeh (desert) towards South to recapture the al-Tanf border-crossing, adding Hasha al-Shaabi tried to go through the army-held regions in Syria to move towards North and open a way to al-Tanf.
