The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) announced on January 9 that their fighters captured 8 foreign terrorists during the ongoing battle against ISIS in the middle Euphrates River Valley.
The terrorists were identified as:
-58-year old Adil Rahimov from Uzbekistan;
-28-year old Ferhad Qaderov from Uzbekistan;
-30-year old Sattibek Oshibaev from Kazakhstan;
-16-year old Soulay Noah Su from the United States.
-22-year old Mohammad Dawlat from Tajikistan;
-27-year old Askar Zarmanbetov from Ukraine;
-31-year old Lucas Glaß from Germany;
-30-year old Bimuraev Begjan from Russia.
Last week, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a US-backed coalition that includes the YPG, claimed that their units had captured five foreign fighters of ISIS. However, Syrian opposition sources said that the terrorists handed themselves over to the SDF.
Thousands of ISIS fighters fled to the SDF-held area in the last few month, according to a recent report of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). Most of these fighters are currently in the SDF’s prisons or hiding in refugee camps.
