Via Fox News: Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced Iraqi forces were in full control of the country’s border with Syria during remarks at a conference in Baghdad, and his spokesman said the development marked the end of the military fight against ISIS.
A senior military commander confirmed to The Associated Press that combat operations had been completed.
“All Iraqi lands are liberated from terrorist Daesh (acronym of the group’s full Arabic name) gangs and our forces completely control the international Iraqi-Syrian border,” Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir Rasheed Yar Allah said in a statement.
The declaration comes two days after the Russian military announced it defeated the terror group in Syria, its ally, the BBC reported.
The terror organization took over almost a third of the Iraqi nation’s territory; one of which was Mosul, the second largest city of Iraq.
During this conflict it was announced multiple times that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who called his reign of terror a new Islamic caliphate, had died.
Details of his mortality have yet to be clarified. According to Reuters, a recording of al-Baghdadi was released on Sept. 28, claiming he was alive.
The war has been won, however what does that mean for their international mission? Many people have been influenced by their extremism because they took the caliphate to social media.
