Iran sends 2,000 advance troops into Iraq over a 48-hour period as President Hassan Rouhani expresses readiness to support the Iraqi government against the ISIS insurgency. An unnamed Iraqi official says 1,500 basiji militia have crossed the border into the town of Khanaqin in the central Diyala province and another 500 have entered the Badra Jassan area in Wassat province.
