Iranian army deploys surveillance systems on border with Iraq

alarabiya – The Iranian army has deployed protection surveillance systems on its western borders with Iraq, according to a report by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Deputy Coordinator of Iran’s Army Ground Forces Ali Jahanshahi disclosed the deployment during a visit to the country’s shared borders with Iraq. The army ground forces are in charge of the security of Iran’s western borders.

Jahanshahi said cameras were deployed for full surveillance to have better protection in the border areas. Jahanshahi added that deploying protection surveillance systems on Iran’s other borders are on the agenda.

The move comes as protests have caused unrest in Iraq. At least 104 people have been killed and more than 6,000 have been wounded in the last week, according to Iraq’s Interior Ministry spokesman Major General Saad Maan.

Maan said 51 public buildings and eight political party headquarters had been torched by protesters.
