Iraq-Syria joint border fully controlled by Iraqi forces

Baghdad, Dec 9, IRNA – Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Saturday that the border along Iraq and Syria has come under full control of the Iraqi forces.

Al-Abadi made the remarks addressing a conference in Baghdad on the international support of the media for Iraqi victories over Daesh terrorist group.

The whole desert between the two provinces of Anbar and Nineveh has been purged of terrorist groups, the Iraqi prime minister said.

Noting that the Iraqi nation managed to emerge victorious over Daesh terrorists with its unity, al-Abadi said that with the existence of unity, anything impossible would become possible.
