Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi Saturday announced the end of a three-year war by Iraqi forces to drive the ISIL terrorists out of the country.
“Our forces are in complete control of the Iraqi-Syrian border and I, therefore, announce the end of the war against ISIL,” Abadi told a conference in Baghdad.
“Our enemy wanted to kill our civilization, but we have won through our unity and our determination. We have triumphed in little time,” he said.
“I announce the good news: the liberation by Iraqi forces of the whole of the Iraqi-Syrian border,” the prime minister told the conference organized by the Iraqi journalists’ union.
