The Iraqi military has “fully liberated” all of Iraq’s territory of ISIS fighters, as well as taking back all of the Iraq-Syria border. Their battle to eliminate ISIS has taken more than 3 years, and around 25,000 airstrikes.
The announcement came from the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi’s Twitter account, saying, “Our heroic armed forces have now secured the entire length of the Iraq-Syria border. We defeated Daesh (ISIS) through our unity and sacrifice for the nation. Long live Iraq and its people.” (source) 4:21 p.m. ET December 9, 2017
