Iraqi Popular Forces Storm ISIL’s Positions in Eastern Syria
Hashd al-Shaabi, for the third time in the last two weeks, scored direct hits on the ISIL inside the Syrian town of al-Dashayshah, which borders Iraq’s Anbar province.
The terrorists were attempting to take advantage of the poor weather to cross over into Iraqi territory.
The Iraqi Armed Forces have repeatedly targeted ISIL’s positions along the Syrian-Iraqi border lately, killing and wounding a large number of the terrorist group’s combatants.
Iraq’s Joint Operation Command announced in a statement earlier last month that the Iraqi fighter jets bombed and destroyed an ISIL command base in Dashisha region in Southern Hasaka.
The statement further said that the air raid was ordered by Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Haydar al-Ebadi and coordinated by Joint Operation Command, adding that Iraqi F16 jets struck ISIL’s base in Southern Hasaka, destroying it completely.
In the meantime, the chairman of the Iraqi Parliaments’ Foreign Affairs Committee underlined growing coordination between the intelligence services of Iraq and Syria is recent months, saying the coordination and cooperation paves the ground for killing or capturing tens of ISIL commanders at joint borders.
