Baghdad National Security Adviser Qassem Al-Araji confirmed Iraq’s participation in the killing of ISIS terrorist leader Abdullah Qardash in Syria.

In a televised statement, he said: The borders with Syria have been secured, and the security forces are fully prepared to thwart any ISIS attack against the background of the killing of the terrorist organization’s leader.

National Security Adviser Qassem Al-Araji said that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi personally supervises the process of securing the border with Syria.

He added, in a televised statement, followed by NINA, that Al-Hol camp is 13 kilometers from the Iraqi border, and a security check has been conducted on the residents of Al-Hol camp for more than two years.

Al-Araji added: There are 70,000 families living in al-Hol camp of different nationalities, including ISIS families, and about 40,000 people in al-Hol camp are 18 years old.

Al-Araji confirmed: Iraq received 450 families from Al-Hol camp and began to rehabilitate them psychologically under the supervision of the United Nations.

Al-Araji confirmed that Al-Hasakah prison in Syria contains the most dangerous terrorists of ISIS.

He said: We have demanded, and we are still calling, for countries to withdraw their nationals from al-Hol camp and to bring them to justice.

Al-Araji explained: The collapse of the SDF in eastern Syria means the collapse of the prisons under its control.

He indicated that the largest number of fugitives from Al-Hasakah prison in Syria surrendered and others were killed.
