Iraq is ready to reflect possible threats from the IS from Syria

IRAQ (OBSERVATORY) –¬†Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced his readiness to defend the country in the event of a threat from the IS from Syria, the prime minister said at a press conference on Tuesday.

“I will take all measures to protect Iraq in case of threat from IS from Syria,” al-Abadi said.

The prime minister also noted that a number of measures were taken to protect the borders, and the IS will not be able to infiltrate Iraq again.
