BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – At least 400 members of the Islamic State (ISIS) members were transferred from the border-city of Albukamal to the Idlib province in northwest Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights alleged on Tuesday.

According to the SOHR report, the 400 ISIS fighters may have been transferred as part of an exchange with the Syrian government for the release of the Druze civilians that were taken hostage by the terrorist group in August.

The SOHR said that the deal was made on Saturday and that the Islamic State members were transferred to a part of Idlib under the control of “jihadist elements.”

The Syrian government has not commented on this claim nor has any source in Sweida mentioned this deal.

Since the Islamic State kidnapped dozens of civilians from the Sweida Governorate in July, the Syrian government has been negotiating the release of the people currently held captive by the terrorist group.

It is believed that the Islamic State has managed to move the civilians from the Al-Safa volcanic region to the Deir Ezzor Governorate, where they are currently being held captive in an undisclosed area.

That’s fine. Put all the foreign backed terrorists in one area so that you can shoot ducks.

Moreover, as soon as jihad can’t extend, it cannibalises itself. They will soon clash with other groups too and if not, let’s put the fire on by having SOFs and spies proceed to some “assassinations” without claims or with false claims, the roaches will go paranoid and start accusing each other…

This comes from the Druze leader Jumblatt and picked up by the UK funded, one man (fake)news in Coventry, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
