The Al Bukamal border crossing between Syria and Iraq has been reopened at noon on Monday. Meanwhile, cars and trucks will be allowed to move freely.

Syria and Iraq had completed all preparations needed to reopen the border checkpoint between the towns of Al Bukamal and Qaim, a major crossing point that has been closed for years following the defeat of the Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for “ISIS” / “ISIL”].

This checkpoint and two others – between Iraq's Al Walid and Syria's At Tanf, and Iraq's Rabia and Syria's Al-Yarubiyah – were closed between 2013 and 2014 after Daesh terrorists gained control over them.
