Iraqi forces have regained full control of the country’s border with Syria, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said Saturday.
"Our forces are in complete control of the Iraqi-Syrian border,” al-Abadi said in statements in the capital Baghdad.
He said the Iraqi victory over the Daesh terrorist group had been realized through unity among Iraqis.
Iraqi forces have managed to recapture all territories overrun by Daesh in northern and western Iraq in 2014, Abadi said.
