US-led coalition airlifts ISIS members from eastern Syria: Reports
The US-led coalition has recently carried out 3 airlifts in the eastern Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, pro-opposition media declared.
Opposition sources said that US special Forces kidnapped Abu Khuzaimah al-Maghribi (a Moroccan national); an ISIS leader in al-Muhasan town located to the south o ISIS-held Deir Ezzor city.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights stated that several ISIS members of European nationalities have been airlifted from al-Tibni town in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor.
Activists think that the three airlifts aimed at either kidnapping senior ISIS commanders of evacuating agents dispatched by foreign intelligence agencies to spy on the terror group.
Meanwhile, the Syrian Army – backed by allied forces – continue to advance toward the embattled city of Deir Ezzor from the Syrian Desert and the southeastern countryside of Raqqa.
