An Islamic State spokesman, “Abu Safiya from Chile”, presents the group’s declaration of a Caliphate removing the border between Iraq and Syria:

As Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (Islamic State’s leader & now “Caliph Ibrahim”) says, he is the breaker of barriers.

Inshallah, we will break all the barriers of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, inshallah, all the countries…These are the first barriers of many we will break.
