The Iraqi Army, the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) and their allies have liberated a large area south and southwest of the ISIS-held city of al-Qaim in western Iraq. The army and the PMu are now working to isolate the ISIS stronghold before they would be able to storm the city itself.

    Iraqi army should provide land route to SAA so they can attack Albukamal and take it before SDF/US scum

    • Deo Cass

      Or the Syrian government can give permission for the PMU to cross the Border and claim Abu-Alkamal themselves on behalf of the Syrian government. The US is an illegal invasion and occupation force on Syrian sovereign land. It has no legal right whatsoever to be there and dictate terms.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        syrian army can not give any permission for iraqi units without permission of iraqi government.

        • Ronald

          That permission was granted a week ago . SAA and PMO , a go go !

          • Solomon Krupacek

            no. iraqi government never allowed the fight of its units in syria. only up to border.

          • George King

            There is a limited but complicit agreement in crossing the border by both Syria and Iraq. Also PMU has been in Syria as part of the coalition. Here is a preview of what is coming to the border at Abu Kamal & Al Qa’im (some of the most powerful ordinance to date).

            Over the course of the last 24 hours, Syrian Arab Army-led forces – backed up by Russian warplanes dropping some of the most powerful ordinance to date – have liberated three important settlements in northeastern Hama from Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra), killing dozens of the terrorist group’s fighters in the process.

            The three towns and villages that have been restored to government protection include Khirbeh Juwyid, Abu Laffeh and Teem al-Hawa.

            Excuse me? Iraqi paramilitary forces have been in Syria for years! What are u talking about?
            They have been in both southern Syria and also helped in Aleppo!
            What the hell are u talking about?

        • Justin

          They will work together! Remember its really Iran who’s calling the shots here! PMU can easily claim they are Syrian soldiers, wouldn’t be hard to do! Both advances are being coordinated so of course they will aid the SAA!

  • Jesus

    PMU units should cross the border and cut off the road leading to Abu Kamal on the east side of Euphrates, denying Scum Defense Forces access to the city, while Hezbollah and SAA units advance from the west.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      why they? why not saa? why should fight iraq for syria?

      • Deo Cass

        Because they’re a brotherly neighbouring people from centuries.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          sure not iraq and syria were enemies. and also now syria did nothing for iraq. nay!, syrians let go isis fighter in iraq. iraqi PM protested gaainst this.

          and once again! IF SYRIANS DO NOT WANT to fight for own country, own future, nobody else should.

          • Ronald

            Wahhabi jihadist are getting plenty of “off shore” help , so SAA is due a little too .
            “Make it so ” .

          • Gary Sellars

            Shut your filthy pie-hole, yid terror-apologist.

      • Jesus

        Why not? Why does scum defense force fight for the US?
        Can’t US fight for itself? Who authorized US to be in Syria? Why does PMU need any authorization to cross the border?

      • VGA

        The Iranian-backed PMU should link up to the SAA before the route is closed by SDF.

    • Ronald

      Just ordered some Tir ll small navy craft with rocket launchers . By land , river and air , the Wahhabi’s “state” is about done .
