BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – An Iraqi military commander told BasNews on Friday that their armed forces have officially entered three border-towns in western Nineveh in a bid to fully secure the Syrian border.

Hamad Al-Namis of the Nineveh Police told BasNews that the Iraqi military is extending its control from the Sinjar Desert to the Baaj Desert, which is just west of Mosul.

The Iraqi forces were backed by their US advisers, who are actively coordinating between the government troops and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) across the border.

Namis added that the Iraqi Armed Forces are constructing a permanent base inside the Sinjar Mountains.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
