IRAQ: MILITARY LAUNCHED MOP-UP OPERATION ALONG THE SYRIA AND JORDAN BORDER

by Marco Co

Iraqi security forces have launched a massive mop-up operation along with the Syria and Jordan border areas, clearing the al-Qaida affiliated groups of the area, Al-Alam reported.

According to Iraqi security officials, a great deal of Turkish-made military equipment, as well as ammunition, have been already seized in this operation, Al-Alam reported on Monday.

The operation comes in an attempt to sever contact between al-Qaeda in Iraq and al-Nusra Front in Syria.

The campaign also occurred at a time when Iraqi forces stationed at the border have been increasingly targeted by sniper fire from al-Nusra Front militants, who are active in Syria.
