BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces are on the verge of entering the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last stronghold in the Al-Anbar Governorate after a short operation near the Syrian border.

Led by the army and Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi), the Iraqi Armed Forces liberated a large chunk of territory south of the border-city of Al-Qa’im.

As a result of their advance, the Iraqi Armed Forces have reached the southern outskirts Al-‘Qa’im, marking the first time in three years that the government has been within striking distance of the city.

In the coming days, the Iraqi Armed Forces are expected to storm Al-Qa’im as they look to expel the Islamic State from Iraq before the new year.

The question is ‘Where will the remnants of ISIS flee to ?’
Will the US give them a safe haven with the Kurds again in Syria ?
