The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights obtained new information today, revealing more members who belonged earlier to the “Islamic State” Organization and then became a part of the so-called “National Army”. The Syrian Observatory obtained information about a person named (N.S.H.), who is from al-Mayadin city and swore allegiance to the “Islamic State” Organization in 2014, and he was transferred within its ranks to the Anbar area in Iraq. Reliable sources said: “this member requested from his commanders to be transferred to Deir Ezzor, his transfer was approved and was sent to Deir Ezzor Airport front in 2017. After the group reduced the salaries of its members to $50, he managed to escape from the Organization’s area to al-Bab area in coordination with his cousin; the leader in Ahrar al-Sharqiyyah faction, and there he joined that faction and participated in Olive Branch Operation. Currently, he resides in Afrin city.”

As part of the continued disclosure of the former members of the “Islamic State” Organization who joined the ranks of the Turkey-loyal factions within the so-called “Syrian National Army,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights obtained on the 19th of November 2019 new information about 3 brothers who were former members of the “Islamic State” organization, and they are now members of the “Ahrar al-Sharqiyyah” faction of the Turkey-loyal “National Army,” and according to information obtained by the Syrian Observatory, before the “Islamic State” Organization took control of Deir Ezzor province, the 3 brothers were members in the ranks of the Battalion of “H. S.”, who is the Emir of the Justice Diwan of the Organization, where he founded it as one of the battalions of the “Free Army”, however, members of the Battalion were working as sleeper cells for the “Islamic State” Organization.

Reliable sources told the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that “After the withdrawal of Jabhat al-Nusra and the factions from the area, members of that battalion -including the 3 brothers- raised the Organization’s flag, and set up checkpoints in the name of the Organization one day before its members entered al-Mayadin city, and at the beginning of 2017, the 3 brothers fled the Organization’s controlled areas and joined “Ahrar al-Sharqiyyah” faction, and they participated in the battles of “Olive Branch” Operation and stayed in Jandairis area of Afrin.”
