On April 15, Spokesman for the Iraqi Security Media Center Brigadier General Yehia Rasool announced in an official statement that the Iraqi Army had launched a security operation to secure Iraq’s border with Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Brig. Gen. Rasool said that units of the Iraqi Army are aleardy working to secure a wide area between Sinjar Mount and the town of al-Ba’aj south of it, near the Syrian-Iraqi border. Meanwhile, other units of Salahuddin Operations Command began clearing the area between the town of Hatar, the al-Sayniya desert and the city of Baghdad from ISIS cells, according to Brig. Gen. Rasool.

The spokesman added that Iraqi Army units in al-Anbar province had begun clearing areas around the towns of Akashat and al-Rutbah near Iraq’s border with Syria and Jordan as a part of the operation.

Brig. Gen. Rasool also announced that Iraqi Army units had fully secured the Hauran valley along the Iraqi-Saudi border from ISIS. The valley, that stretches for more than 350km, had been actively used by ISIS cells, according to Iraqi sources.

Local observers believe that the Iraqi Army will secure all the remaining areas within days. However, ISIS will likely resurface there soon after as its cells are often leave such areas ahead of any operation of the Iraqi Army.

Why play Whack-a-Mole with ISIS on your borders forever, Iraq? You know exactly who encourages their Wahhabi religious extremism. You know exactly who supplies their weapons. You know who pays them and who they work for (aside from CENTCOM). And You must know by now that they will never, EVER stop coming to kill Iraqis because these guys will keep sending them


Destroy the nest!


Actually on Saddam era they already tried to. The USA still their best hound dogs even now.

Well in some other news in Iraq PKK claim to have killed 14 Turkish Soldiers in the Sadakan region @IraqiSecurity and Iraqi Justice has just executed 11 ISIS members for various terrorist crimes. Then in the mundane news Jerusalem Post May claims: Syrian strikes were in Britain’s interest and not because Trump Told her they had to deliver. it/QPkBrj

Notice this operation is in the South and not North as they are expecting more infiltration points of the west’s proxy forces from those areas.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
