BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad has allegedly given Iraq approval to conduct attacks inside Syria without his government’s approval, Iraqi News reported on Sunday.

According to the report, Assad will allow Iraq to carry out attacks against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) without his government’s approval, as long as they keep an open line of communication with Damascus.

What will this mean?

Iraq will be able to attack Islamic State targets in Syria without awaiting Damascus’ approval, thus allowing them to continue their fight against the terrorist group without any interruption or obstruction

This move by the Syrian government comes as the U.S. announced their military withdrawal from Syria after a long campaign inside this Levantine country.

Iraq and Syria have made several strides in improving their relations over the last five years, prompting both historical nations to work closely together in the fight against the Islamic State.
