Syria Approves Approved Iraqi Air Force To Conduct Cross-Border Anti-ISIS Raids

The Syrian government has officially approved the Iraqi Air Force to bomb ISIS targets across the Syrian border, according to reports in media.

Reports came following the statement from Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi who had claimed that Syrian President Bashar Assad had approved Iraqi airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.

“Our countries are facing a common threat. Both Iraq and Syria are fighting Daesh [ISIS] extremists. We have been coordinating our anti-terrorist efforts for years. And such statements would not be made if Damascus hadn’t approved Iraqi aviation taking part in operations over Syrian territory. I expect that Syrian planes may also start pursuing the militants in Iraq near the Syrian border,” the Russian Izvestia newspaper qouted Sadji Taama, member of parliament from the ruling Arab Socialist Baath Party.

So far, this is the only official statement from the Syrian leadership on the issue.
