US Aircraft Evacuates Over 20 ISIS Commanders From Deir Ezzor – Reports
A military and diplomatic source told Sputnik that a US Air Force plane had evacuated Daesh (ISIS, banned in Russia) field commanders from Deir ez-Zor.
A US Air Force aircraft evacuated 20 Daesh field commanders from the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor liberated this week by the government forces back in August, a military and diplomatic source told Sputnik.
“Amid successful actions by the Syrian government troops in the eastern part of Syria in late August, a number of field [Daesh] commanders backed by US special services, had been promptly evacuated from Deir ez-Zor to safer regions in order to use their experience in other directions,” the source said.
The source said that on August 26, a “US Air Force helicopter” had evacuated 2 Daesh field commanders of “European origin” with members of their families from an area located to the north-west of Deir ez-Zor at night.
