Iraqi forces have recently begun strengthening their security detachments along the border with Syria.
The new security measures came as a quick response to talks about a possible air strike by the United States against the Syrian regime.
An uncertain situation has prompted Iraqi defense and interior ministries to visit the borders to observe the security measures on the borderlines.
Ever since the Syrian revolution began, Iraqi borders have witnessed strict security measures represented with increasing barriers, patrols and watchtowers.
Iraq fears that intrusions from its embattled neighbor may increase due to a possible military strike against Syria.
