Iraq buys border security system for Iran, Syria frontiers
(AFP)

BAGHDAD — Iraq has bought a 49-million-dollar border surveillance system to better secure its porous frontiers with neighbouring Iran and Syria, the US military said on Friday.

The system will only monitor activity along a third of Iraq's borders with Iran and Syria, which spawn 1,458 kilometres (around 415 miles) and 605 kilometres (375 miles) respectively, according to the American mission charged with training Iraq's security forces.

Overall, the system will provide security for 286 kilometres of the Iraq-Syria border and 402 kilometres of the Iraq-Iran border, the Multi-National Security Transition Command (MNSTC-I) said in a statement.

Iraq has accused Damascus of harbouring the masterminds behind two sets of massive bombings against government offices in Baghdad in recent months, while the US military has said infiltration along both borders remains a concern.

The new border surveillance system, which will become operational in June, will include towers with cameras, infra-red sensors and systems to relay information and communications to a regional command centre.

According to the US military, it has a modular design that allows its coverage area to be increased.
