    Iraqi forces launch new operation to liberate major ISIS stronghold on Syria-Iraq border

    October 25, 2017 - Fort Russ News - Paul Antonopoulos


    Iraqi forces have now begun an important operation to defeat ISIS from the final major city they control in the country.

    Al-Qaim, with a pre-war population of 150,000 people, is on the Syrian-Iraqi border and is one of the last major transit points for the terrorist organisation between the two countries.

    This comes as Syrian government forces are conducting an operation to liberate Al-Bukamal directly opposite Al-Qaim on the Syrian side of the border in Deir Ezzor province.

    The countrysides of Iraq's Anbar province where Al-Qaim is located, and Syria's Deir Ezzor province is considered the heartland of ISIS and where they enjoy most of their support among Syrians and Iraqis. 

    The capture of these two aforementioned towns by Iraqi and Syrian forces respectively will effectively turn ISIS into a hit-and-run insurgency force rather than the army it once was.
