Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi has made instructions to secure the Iraqi borders to limit the infiltration of the terrorists.

A statement by the office of Abadi, who is the commander in chief of the armed forces, said he “gave instructions to secure the Iraqi borders to limit the infiltration of the terrorists as well as orders regarding the airstrikes against the militants outside the borders.”

Abadi also praised “the developing capabilities of our troops as well as the effort made by the intelligence based on planning and drawing strategies for the sake of developing the armed forces.”

The Iraqi-Syrian borders are under the control of joint troops of military and border guards.

Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country.

Thousands of IS militants as well as Iraqi civilians were killed since the government campaign, backed by paramilitary troops and the coalition was launched in October 2016 to fight the militant group, which declared a self-styled “caliphate” from Mosul in June 2014.

In December, Abadi announced full liberation of Iraqi lands, declaring end of war against IS members. However, Islamic State continues to launch sporadic attacks across Iraq against troops. Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country.

  1. What a misleading heading. Abadi really needs to instruct his armed Forces to secure the border to Syria. If he instructs now, what did his Forces do before???? Letting DAESH in?
