The US forces allegedly opened a passageway at the Syria-Iraq border to ease the transfer of Daesh terrorists from Syria into the depth of Iraq, an Iraqi Member of Parliament disclosed on Saturday.
The Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumah news website quoted Ali Qavi, an Iraqi parliamentarian, as disclosing that the US-led coalition forces have opened a safe passageway to move the Daesh terrorists from Syria to the depth of Iraq.
Qavi further told the news website that the Iraqi Parliament intends to give a serious review of a strategic agreement with Washington that has thus far not brought about any military or security results for Baghdad.
The website went on to say that the agreement will be called off once Iraq’s new cabinet of ministers is completely formed.
It said that the Iraqi forces and popular forces of Hashd al-Shaabi are capable of guarding the borders without the partnership of the US-led coalition forces.
The Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website quoted Hashem al-Moussavi as saying on Tuesday that a number of Daesh’s leadership were sheltered at Iraq’s border with Syria.
He added that Syria’s al-Tanf base was the main stronghold for Daesh; it also is home to their primary supply lie, the Iraqi daily said.
Al-Moussavi said that the Iraqi security forces and Hashd al-Shaabi are presently trying to clear the Wadi Houran region in al-Anbar (at the borders between Iraq and Syria) from terrorists.
