US Attack against Jurf Al-Nasr Aimed at Paving Ground for ISIL’s Revival

TEHRAN (FNA)– A senior Iraqi source said that the early Tuesday airstrikes against Jurf al-Nasr region at the bordering areas of Iraq and Syria were aimed at preparing the ground for the ISIL to enter the country.

Al-Qadir news network quoted a “special source” as saying on Tuesday that the attack on Iraqi army units in Jurf al-Nasr area was part of the US ongoing attempts to destabilize Iraq.

He added that the air raids targeted a number of Iraqi army units, killing several forces and wounding a number of others.

The source noted that the US attacks were aimed at undermining Iraq’s military power in the region in a bid to the pave the ground for the ISIL terrorists to penetrate into Jurf al-Nasr area from the Syrian border, specially from the US-occupied Al-Tanf base.

Loud explosions were heard South of Iraq’s capital of Baghdad Tuesday overnight, according to Lebanese Al-Meyadeen TV. 

Al-Meyadeen also reported that American warplanes were heard flying over Syria’s border with Iraq prior to the explosions. 

The explosions were heard in Jurf al-Nasr, some 60 kilometers (37 miles) Southwest of Baghdad, an area taken by the ISIL in 2014 and liberated that year by the Iraqi army and popular forces.
