    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT/NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 17 - Irachi Premier Haider al-Abadi on Wednesday appealed to the international community to extend its campaign against ISIS to Syria as soon as possible.

    ''The fight against the group which declared the birth of a caliphate will not be won until ISIS is attacked on both fronts, in Iraq and in Syria,'' Abadi said.

    Meanwhile, Syrian-Kurdish militias denied accusations of having killed more than 40 Arab civilians in northeastern Syria, claimed Monday by sources in the region of Qamishli and reported by pan-Arabian media. Local media reported a statement by Syrian-Kurdish militias blaming the Islamic State for the deaths of at least 16 civilians in the narrow area triangulated by Qamishli in the north, the Iraqi-Syrian border in the south, and Hasake in the west.

    There were intense armed clashes in that area, as well as heavy air raids, made by the Bashar al-Assad regime September 13-16. (ANSAmed).
