Iraqi forces seized from Daesh [ISIS/ISIL] one of the official border crossings between the country and Syria, thus choking a key supply line feeding the Takfiri terrorist group.
Al-Waleed, which together with two other passageways links Iraq and Syria, came under government control on Saturday, Reuters reported.
The advance took place as the Syrian government and its allies too are hemming the terrorists in on the other side of the border.
Al-Waleed is close to the al-Tanf crossing on the common border, which is the key to the Baghdad-Damascus Highway and also links up to the main Baghdad-Amman route.
