Iraqi, Syrian Gov’t Forces Cooperating to Secure Common Borderline


The Iraqi and Syrian forces have been actively working across the two sides of their common borders to defeat the ISIL terrorist group that has been occupying large territories in both countries.

The Iraqi and Syrian forces have launched simultaneous offensives in Iraq’s Anbar province and Deir Ezzur province in Syria in a bid to secure the long borderline between the two countries, the English-language Lebanon-based AMN reported.

Since launching their offensive, the Iraqi Armed Forces have liberated more than 22,000 square kilometers of territory near the Syrian border.

Meanwhile, their counterparts from the Syrian army have also managed to liberate large territories in Deir Ezzur province, retaking several districts inside the provincial capital.
