Iraq Hits ‘Jihadist Convoy’ in Syria
The convoy was heading towards the border and was due to supply jihadi militants in Iraq’s Anbar province, according to the Interior Ministry.
It is believed to be the first time Iraq has said it has carried out an attack inside Syria.
Al-Qaeda linked group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) fights the governments in Syria and Iraq.
Isis has recently created a safe passage from Anbar to the north Syrian city of Aleppo, says BBC Arabic’s Murad Batal Shishani.
