BAGHDAD — Iraqi parliament has ordered an investigation into a recent agreement between Islamic State (IS), Syrian Regime and Lebanon’s Hezbollah which allowed hundreds of jihadists to move from Syria-Lebanon borders to the border areas of Iraq.
Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri denounced on Wednesday the plan which may pose threat to Iraq. He has reportedly ordered the formation of a special committee to launch an immediate investigation into the reports.
He asked the parliamentary Committee for Defence and Security Affairs to prepare a comprehensive report and point out the impacts the move may leave on the security situation in Iraq.
Nearly 600 IS militants, armed and equipped, have recently been evacuated from Qalamoun region of western Syria to Deir az-Zour in the east of the country, bordering Iraq.
Kurdistan Region Presidency and Kurdistan Region Security Council expressed earlier today their concerns over the transfer of the insurgents to Iraq's border, saying that the move was “suspicious”.
