Iraqi Army, US-backed SDF Establish Joint Center To Secure Shared Chunk Of Syrian-Iraqi Border

The Iraqi Army and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) will form a joint military center to secure the border area shared by the two sides.

According to reports, the sides reached an agreement aimed at preventing further ISIS activities in the border area after the de-facto defeat of the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq.

The establishment of the joint military center indicates that the US is set to continue  its efforts aimed at de-facto separating of the SDF-held area from Syria and turning it into an enclave controlled and governed by the US-backed force.

    Is the agreement with the Iraqi army or the PMU part of it ?….if that makes sense.

    I do hope that after all the efforts by the SAA + allies, the US, Kurds and the Iraqis do not turn the tide.

      America is still intent on doing what Israel wants. That will never change.

        I understand that, but dependant on the answer to my asked question, it could give us an indication how easy it will be made for the Israel – USA to implement it.

          Oh I think there will be many dirty tricks come into play whoever is involved.
          As for what America say, they do not have a reputation for honesty.
