ISIS armoured vehicles are advancing towards the Iraqi-Jordanian border
ISIS terrorists in armoured vehicles were reportedly spotted by residents in the Ar-Rutbah district in western Iraq, right next to the Jordanian border.
The region is strategically important as the main link between the Iraqi capital Baghdad and Jordanian capital Amman as well as the home of a major pipeline between Mosul and the Israeli city of Haifa.
The appearance of jihadis in the war-torn region comes just a year after the Iraqi army flushed the terrorists out of the region.
ISIS fighters are believed to be arriving from territories in regions still controlled by the depraved death cult.
This has led to a fresh wave of attacks on Iraqi forces, with an ambush in April reportedly leaving 10 soldiers dead.
Jordan has felt the humanitarian weight of the civil war in neighbouring Syria and the Islamist insurgency in Iraq.
Up to 2,000 refugees have poured across the border a day at the start of the civil war, official figures show.
It is believed there are around 1.4million Syrian refugees living in the country, spread out across a number of camps the country.
Military action by Russia, the US and its allies have rattled the ranks of ISIS as the terror group continues to lose ground in Iraq and Syria.
