Iraq to put ISIS at high alert with reaching Syrian border in few weeks

The Iraqi Army, alongside the Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi), is rolling through Al-Anbar’s western countryside, liberating large chunks of territory along the southern bank of the Euphrates River en route to the Syrian border-crossing.

According to recent reports from Al-Anbar, the Iraqi Army has liberated more than 40 km of territory along the main road between Haditha and Al-Qa’im after a quick two-day battle with the ISIS.

With only two major towns between their positions and Al-Qa’im, the Iraqi Army could reach the Syrian border-crossing in a few weeks, putting the ISIS militants in Mosul at high alert as their main link between Syria and Iraq comes under threat.

In the coming days, the Iraqi Army’s offensive should intensify as the ISIS sends reinforcements from Deir Ezzor to Al-Anbar in order to forestall the attack.
