US forces had moved dozens of ISIS captives in northeastern Syria from prisons run by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to their main base in southern al-Hasakah, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on August 6.
“American occupation forces transferred 40 ISIS terrorists who were detained in the Industrial Secondary Prison and the so-called Self-Defense Prison at the southern entrance to the city of al-Hasakah to their base in the town of al-Shaddadi,” the stat-run agency quoted an informed source as saying.
Among those transferred to al-Shaddadi base by US force were a commander of an ISIS intelligence network and an explosives expert of the terrorist group.
Local sources in al-Hasakah confirmed that a number of ISIS captives were moved by American helicopters to al-Shaddadi base.
The SANA said that the US wants to redeploy the terrorists in order to “implement its plans for the region,” without elaborating.
The US moved dozens of ISIS captives out of SDF-run prisons in northeastern Syria over the last few years. The Syrian state media and other sources claim that the US is deploying these terrorists in other hot regions, or using them against government forces and their allies in Syria.
