10 June 2017 19:27

The Syrian army reached on Friday the country’s border with Iraq near the town of al-Tanf, local media reported.

(MNA/sputnic) — The Syrian army supported by allied units continues the offensive in the Badiya desert, where they reached the border with Iraq, the SANA news agency reported citing a military source.

All units of ISIS terror group remaining in the area, were reportedly eliminated during the offensive.

The offensive advances despite the US-led coalition’s airstrike that hit the Syrian troops near al-Tanf on Thursday. Syria as well as Russia condemn coalition airstrikes against Syrian troops saying that such strikes violate international law and strengthen terrorists’ positions.
