SYRIA ACCUSES U.S. OF TRANSFERRING DAESH COMMANDERS IN EASTERN SYRIA
DAMASCUS, U.S. helicopters transferred commanders of the Daesh group, from the eastern province of Deir al-Zour, to areas in the north-eastern province of Hasakah.
U.S. helicopters, coming from the northern countryside of Deir al-Zour, landed near the al-Basel Dam, south of Hasakah, transporting Daesh leaders, who surrendered to the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
It’s not the first transfer of Daesh leaders, as, earlier this month, U.S. helicopters transferred 47 leaders, to the same area in Hasakah, many of whom had fled the areas, due to the military operations of the Syrian army.
The injured Daesh leaders were medically treated by the Doctors Without Border organisation.
The report renewed accusation that Washington is supporting the Daesh, in eastern Syria.
The SDF, alliance of Kurds, Arabs, and Assyrians, controlled areas in the northern countryside of Deir al-Zour, with the backing of the U.S., following their capture of the northern city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of Daesh.
The Syrian government refused to acknowledge the liberation of Raqqa, saying, it’s still occupied by the U.S. and the Kurdish-led fighters.
In his recent comments, Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Mekdad, said, the SDF was “the new Daesh.” He said, the SDF should either return, under the umbrella of the Syrian Arab Republic, or they would meet similar destiny as the Daesh.
