BAGHDAD, Jan 12 (KUNA) -- Iraq said on Saturday it was set to close two border crossings with Syria a few days after closing the Traibeel border crossing with Jordan.
The northwestern Rabeea and Al-Waleed border crossings will be closed as of Sunday, announced Iraq's Defence Ministry.
The decision was taken due to security concerns and will resume until further notice, according to acting Defence Minister Saadoun Al-Dulaimi.
The concerns are that armed rebels could cross the border from either Jordan or Syria to take part in violent activities in Iraq.
Protests across Iraq calling against secular divisions and voicing support for incumbent President Nouri Al-Maliki have entered their 21st day. (end) mhg.sd KUNA 121914 Jan 13NNNN
