Iraqi army helped Syrian government retake border checkpoint - reports
Published time: March 02, 2013 01:19

The Iraqi army has reportedly shelled Free Syrian Army positions inside Syria near the border with Iraq. Unconfirmed reports suggest that Iraq was helping Syrian government forces regain control of a border checkpoint seized by the insurgency.

Syrian troops have recaptured the Al-Ya'robiya checkpoint on the border with Iraq on Friday night. According to witness reports on Twitter, Iraq's armed forces moved in to help with the operation and shelled the border post, which was held by the rebels.

An Al-Arabiya correspondent also confirmed that targets inside Syria had been shelled while Iraqi snipers took positions near the crossing. Massive reinforcements have also been deployed in Baghdad near the Syrian border, the correspondent said.

I can understand the Iraqi government wanting to keep their borders secured. The Syrian insurgency has clear associations with militant fundies who think Mecca is especially in dire need of theocracy.

You mean it was the rebels that fired a scud missile in Iraq yesterday?

If its true at all, accourding to google maps Al-Ya'robiya doesn't exists :-)

I am starting to doubt news like that are all part of the FUD strategy, scared people do not protest austerity :-)
