BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 P.M.) – Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Al-‘Abadi ordered his air force to carry out airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) in eastern Syria, Al-Sumaria TV reported on Friday.

“We have sent the [Iraqi] Air Force to carry out strikes on Daesh on the Syrian territory,” Abadi was quoted as saying by Alsumaria TV network.

If true, this will be the first time during this war that the Iraqi Air Force has directly entered Syrian airspace to attack the Islamic State terrorist organization.

The Iraqi Armed Forces are currently involved in a massive battle with the Islamic State in northwest Iraq, as they look to liberate the strategic city of Mosul.
