General Soleimani Accompanies Iraqi Popular Forces in Anti-ISIL Operation at Border with Syria
The AMN reported that the prominent Iranian general was advising the high command of the Popular Mobilization Units during their important operation along the Syrian border-crossing.
With the capture of ISIL’s last crossing in Nineveh province, the Popular Mobilization Units will now turn their attention South towards the Takfiri terrorist group’s final stronghold on the Syrian border.
On Monday, Secretary General of Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces) Hadi al-Ameri announced that his forces deployed at the country’s borders with Syria, adding that the popular forces would soon launch an anti-ISIL cleansing operation along the border.
Al-Ameri said that Hashd al-Shaabi fighters opened their way to Iraq’s border with Syria, adding that the forces deployed in the border village of Um Jaris.
“We are now in this region (Um Jaris) that is a border-crossing with Syria,” al-Ameri said, adding, “Cleansing operation at Iraq’s border with Syria from Um Jaris up to the town of al-Qa’em will be kicked off tomorrow.”
