BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Iraqi Interior Ministry announced on Sunday that their intelligence forces foiled a potential terrorist attack by the Islamic State (ISIS) in neighboring Iran and Turkey.

“The intelligence team which had infiltrated the terrorist groups could provide the quadrilateral coalition of Iraq, Syria, Iran and Russia with intelligence about ISIL’s moves,” the head of al-Soqour intelligence group at the Iraqi interior ministry Abu Ali al-Basari was quoted as saying by Iraq’s SNG news agency on Sunday.

He added that the terrorists had plotted to carry out terrorist attacks in Turkey, Iran and Iraq’s Suleimaniyeh Governorate.

The report noted that the numerous airstrikes launched by the Russian fighter jets in Syria foiled the ISIL plots to infiltrate Iran, Iraq, Turkey and some of the European states and operations in Raqqa and Albu Kamal in Syria.
