Iraq denies awareness of deal to transfer ISIS terrorists to borders

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s media office denied on Friday that the government was aware of an agreement under which ISIS terrorists are transferred from Syrian-Lebanese border to Syria’s Albu Kamal town near Iraqi border.
The office added that the agreement was reached out of the Iraqi government’s sight.
It was reported on Thursday that the Syrian intelligence had provided a safe passage to Iraq for over 800 ISIS terrorists after a deal struck in Arsal with Hezbollah militias. 
Analysts warned against the ramifications of the deal that was struck between ISIS terrorists and Hezbollah.
They said that the deal was to give ISIS terrorists weapons and safe passage to Iraq to assault Sadrist Movement's strongholds in Baghdad after a meeting with former prime minister Nouri al-Maliki and Iranian Ambassador to Iraq Irij Masjidi.
