On Tuesday, security and military expert, Aqeel Al-Taie, considered the government’s move towards building a security fence on the Iraqi-Syrian border a step in the right direction, while stressing that these measures will limit suspicious security movements in that region.
Al-Taie said in an interview with the Maalouma Agency, “The recent American movements have become clear on the border strip with Syria and the eastern bases,” pointing out that “ISIS is moving to and from Iraq across the Syrian border strip with these movements and under protected cover to Al-Hasakah Governorate.”
He continued, "The border fences will control the movement of infiltrators into the border by supporting them with thermal surveillance cameras and security towers," noting that "the border must be secured by a second supporting line from the army or the Popular Mobilization Forces."
Al-Taie added during his speech: “Difficult geography can provide high concentration through surveillance cameras linked to satellites or drones,” adding that “the government’s move towards building a security fence on the Iraqi-Syrian border will limit the ongoing suspicious American movements.”
The issue of the Iraqi-Syrian border, which is approximately 620 kilometers long, represents one of the most prominent security challenges for Iraq, given the continuing American movements on the border strip, amid fears of the continued transfer of ISIS terrorist gangs between Iraq and Syria.
