Security committee says Anbar not threatened by ISIS

A local administration committee in Al-Anbar Governorate said recent developments and security enforcement near the borders with Syria do not implicate any real threats.

The committee said in a press statement that rumors about the western area being threatened by ISIS once again are not true.

Recent security measures were taken by the Iraqi government to secure the borders with Syria after Syrian forces withdrew from Deir ez-Zor.

Iraq's Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Adil Abdul Mahdi stressed on Sunday the importance of securing the crossing borders with Syria.
