Alwaght- US Air Force helicopters have been spotted evacuating non-Syrian ISIS commanders with their family members from Syria’s al-Hasakah province and transferring them to an unknown destination.
According to a Wednesday report of the official Syrian news agency, Sana, US military helicopters reportedly evacuated several ISIS commanders from the al-Hasakah province.
Reports of the evacuation came day after US President Trump threatened Syria with a possible strike over alleged chemical weapons strike in Douma.
Media reports indicated that US forces conducted yet another operation rescuing three ISIS commanders of Iraqi origin along with their family members from Tal al-Shayer region 20 kilometers southeast of the Syrian city of al-Shadadi in Hasakah. The evacuees were transferred to an unknown location.
It was also reported that in the course of the evacuation, US troops organized a staged clash on the ground that resulted in the death of one civilian while several others were injured.
During the past few months, Washington transported many foreign ISIS leaders from the eastern region in Syria in order to re-employ them to implement new aggressive plans both in Syria and abroad.
In December 2017 the media outlet revealed that a number of ISIS terrorists had been evacuated from several locations across the Deir ez-Zor province to the al-Hasakah region, under the control of Syrian Kurdish and US forces.
Over the past several months, the Syrian government has repeatedly voiced its concerns over US efforts aimed at providing support to extremist groups on the ground in Syria.
