Even Iran Fears ISIS, Adds Surveillance Along Border

Apparently, even Iran fears the Al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams, also knowns as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), or the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL).

The Islamic Republic has stepped up its surveillance along its border with Iraq, according to Iranian Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli.

The minister told the official Iranian IRNA news agency, “Due to the unique situation in Iraq and its proximity to our western regions we have taken due precautions to shore up control, watches and fortifications along the border. But presently we have no worries.”

Over the weekend, ISIS captured three border crossings with Syria and Jordan, as well as four towns along the Iraqi-Syrian border.
