Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) personnel captured five foreign fighters of ISIS who were trying to target the civilians fleeing the terrorist group’s territory in the Middle Euphrates River Valley, the US-backed group announced in an official statement on January 6.
The foreign terrorists were identified as:
-34-year old Warren Christopher Clark, known as Abu Mohammad al-Ameriki, from Houston, U.S.;
-35-year old Zaid Abed al-Hamid, known as Abu Zaid al-Ameriki, from the U.S.;
-45-year old Alexandr Ruzmatovich Bekmirzaev, from Dublin, İreland;
-48-year old Fadel al-Rahman Cad, known as Abu Enam al-Muhajir, from Lahor, Pakistan;
-19-year old Abed al-Azem Rajhoud, known as Abu Omea al-Pakistani, from Sialkot, Pakistan.
Contrary to the SDF claims, the Syrian Orient TV and several other pro-opposition news outlets said that the five ISIS fighters had surrendered themselves to the US-backed group.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), more than 550 fighters and commanders of ISIS have fled to the SDF-held area since the begning of the US-led coaltion attack on the terrorist group-held pocket in the Euphrates Valley. It’s not clear yet how the SDF is dealing with these terrorists.
