Abadi also said that there are joint efforts with neighboring countries to Iraq to protect the borders

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said that he has ordered armed forces to fight against ISIS, even from within Syrian territory. 

In a statement on Tuesday, Abadi also said that there are joint efforts with neighboring countries to Iraq to protect the borders from any threat ISIS may pose. 

The prime minister also warned various forces against harming federal forces or citizens in Kurdistan, Kirkuk and disputed areas. If "disobeyed," consequences will be harsh no matter the offender, he added. 

Meanwhile, air strikes coordinator for the international alliance against ISIS Brigadier General Andrew Croft said on Tuesday that Iraqi operations forces fighting against the terrorist group will not reach Syrian territory. 

During a press conference Croft dismissed having knowledge of Iranian militia at the Iraqi and Syrian borders between Al-Bukamal and Al-Qaim. 

Croft stressed that Iraqi operations are carried out under Baghdad’s supervision. 

He also said that the Washington-led coalition continues to have good relations with the Peshmerga and Iraqi forces alike.
