BEIRUT: An Iraqi agent met Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Thursday to investigate coordinate military collaboration against Islamic State (IS) activists, Syrian state media said.
U.S.- sponsored Iraqi powers have been wearing down the rest of the areas of Mosul under Islamic State control, seven months into a crusade to recover Iraq's second biggest city.
"They (Assad and Fayad) investigated the possibility of direct participation soon between the Syrian and Iraqi armed forces to battle fear based oppression by and large," SANA said.
Iraqi warplanes have hit IS inside Syria in a joint effort with Damascus. IS holds swathes of region in northwestern Iraq and eastern Syria, yet has lost impressive ground to U.S.- supported military offensives over the previous year.
In Syria, Islamic State is contending energetically against a few separate adversaries, including Russian-upheld Syrian government strengths, attempting to fortify its nearness as it is being pushed back in neighboring parts of Iraq.
