BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:35 P.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces have liberated the entire border with Syria, today, after conducting a swift operation between the Al-Anbar and Nineveh governorates.

Led by the army and Hashd Al-Sha’abi, the Iraqi Armed Forces pushed their way north from the border-city of Al-Qa’im towards the Nineveh Governorate town of Tal Safuk, liberating a large portion of territory near the Syrian provinces of Al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor.

As a result of this advance, the Iraqi Armed Forces sealed the entire Syrian border for the first time since the Islamic State launched their massive offensive in the Summer of 2014.

The Iraqi Armed Forces will now work to clear the Islamic State’s last pocket that is located between the Al-Anbar and Salaheddine governorates.
