Iraq Deploying Nearly 30,000 Fighters to Syrian Border to Fight ISIS

With most ISIS forces believed to be operating in the desert in eastern Syria, Iraq is facing growing concern that they’ll eventually, in the face of US-backed offensives, cross into Iraqi territory and try to set up shop again.

The Iraqi military announced that two Army brigades, a total of 8,000 soldiers, have been dispatched to the border. The Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) say 20,000 Shi’ite militia fighters are also en route.

All told that’s nearly 30,000 fighters loyal to the Iraqi government heading to the Syrian border, in an attempt to keep ISIS from crossing in. Given the size of the border, however, it’s not clear how well they will be able to prevent cross-overs, if ISIS decides to.

That may not be an immediate concern, with ISIS forces in Syria continuing to fight against the Kurdish YPG in the last few towns they have yet.

And why do the Iraqis think that US-backed, funded, and trained ISIS mercs will try to set up shop in Iraq?!?
May 2018 Iraqi Parliamentary elections You will note, that the leader of the Iraqi Parliament is none other than Muqtada al-Sadr, a virulently anti-US cleric who was the head of the Mahdi army, and threatened that US troops were "fair game" for attack if they stayed in Iraq a millisecond over the time the SOFA said they needed to be out of Iraq.

His coalition has to be the State Department's worst nightmare, so since they have the ISIS troops in Northern Syria, they are figuring that they will use them to destabilize Iraq yet again, as the current government is not to their liking.
