Iraqi forces kill several ISIS terrorists in shootout along the Syrian border
The Iraqi Armed Forces killed several Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists that were attempting to infiltrate from the Syrian border this week.
According to a military report from Baghdad, the Iraqi Border Guards, alongside Hashd Al-Sha’abi, were involved in a fierce battle with Islamic State militants this week, as the latter attempted to infiltrate the government’s garrisons.
As a result of this attack, at least seven Islamic State terrorists were killed and several more were wounded, resulting in the terrorist group’s ultimate withdrawal from the border.
In response to this attack, the Iraqi Armed Forces have sent a large number of reinforcements from Hashd Al-Sha’abi to the Syrian border in order to confront any future attacks by ISIS.
