The Iraqi Army and the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) have liberated the strategic border city of al-Qaim from ISIS.

The army and the PMU launched its attack on al-Qaim on November 3 morning and liberated the city by the evening facing a relatively small ISIS resistance in the area. Now, when the last major ISIS stronghold in Iraq fell into the hands of government forces, the army and the PMU will be able to work on securing the rest of western Iraq.

This also opens additional opportunities for Syrian forces which are now working to retake the ISIS-held city of al-Bukamal on the Syrian side of the border.

On November 3 morning, the Syrian military also announced the liberation of Deir Ezzor city.
