Iraq says it killed 36 'IS terrorists' in Syria raid

Iraq says it killed 36 'IS terrorists' in Syria raid”

The group has threatened to attack Iraqi polling stations and voters during parliamentary elections next month.

In an audio message released late on Sunday, the terror group's spokesman said that anyone who participated in the vote would be considered an infidel.

"We warn you, Sunnis of Iraq, of these people [Shiites] taking power. The voting centres and those in them are targets for our swords, so stay away from them and do not walk nearby". In response, Iraqi security officials vowed to protect polling places.

The airstrikes were reportedly carried out on the orders of Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, who is also the commander-in-chief of the Iraqi forces, aimed at protecting the Iraqi forces near the border with Syria in western Iraq.

On Dec. 9, 2017, Abadi officially declared full liberation of Iraq from IS militants after Iraqi forces recaptured all the areas once seized by the extremist group.

Remaining ISIS forces in Syria are mostly in Deir Ezzor Province, near the Iraq border.

Strangely, the Syrian military hasn't offered any public statements on the matter, either confirming the ISIS casualties or that an ISIS explosive factory was destroyed.
