BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The pro-government Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) liberated a new border-crossing, Saturday, following a short battle with the Islamic State (ISIL) forces in the area.

According to a statement released by the Iraqi Joint Command, the Popular Mobilization Units, alongside the border-guards, liberated the Al-Waleed Border-Crossing that leads into Syria’s Homs Governorate.

The Popular Mobilization Units initially recaptured the Al-Waleed Crossing in 2015; however, they would later lose this site after a counter-offensive by the Islamic State in southwest Al-Anbar.

As a result of this successful operation, the Iraqi Armed Forces have liberated the Iraqi-Syrian-Jordanian borders, marking the first time since 2014 that their forces have established control over this area.
