Iraq intends to continue destroying Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants, even within the borders of neighboring countries, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Jaafari told Sputnik.
On Friday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi said he had authorized the Iraqi Air Force to conduct strikes against IS in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province.
The strategy of the Iraqi security forces is to fight IS as long as they present a threat to the national security of Iraq.
“We will continue pursue and eliminate [IS members] on any territories,” Jaafari said.
