DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:30 P.M.) – ISIS insurgents have captured several kilometers of border territory between Iraq and Syria, a new batch of pictures released by Amaq Agency reveals.

The jihadist belligerents overran Iraqi-held positions near the Al-Tanf border crossing and planted bombs at two communication towers which they claimed were used by the Iraqi Army. Both towers were demolished in front of a crowd of ISIS militants:

Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is pushing ever closer to the Iraqi border – specifically the rebel-held Al-Tanf crossing – alongside paramilitary contingents recently bombed by the US Air Force.

Even though the SAA is gradually retaking the main highway between Damascus and Baghdad, ISIS is still capable of conducting ambushes and hit-and-run attacks along the road at any point in time, similar to the situation around the Aleppo supply line.

It is obvious ISIS, which are US/British and NATO troops under cover, is working hand in hand with the US invasion coalition terror forces. Their aim to prevent the resistance axis from Iran to Iraq to Syria from being conjoined.
