Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi said on Friday (Feb 24) he had given orders to the Iraqi air force to strike ISIS in positions inside Syria in retaliation to recent bomb attacks in Baghdad.

“We are determined to chase terrorism that tries to kill our sons and citizens wherever it is found, so we gave orders to the air force command to strike ISIS positions in Hosaiba and Albu Kamal inside Syrian territory as they were responsible for recent bombings in Baghdad,” Abbadi said in a statement.

“The heroes of the sky executed the operation and responded to the terrorists with amazing success.”
