SOHR | “Regime media reports of transporting ISIS prisoners to the US base of Al-Tanaf, untrue”
Reliable SOHR sources have confirmed that reports circulated on regime media outlets on transporting nearly 60 ISIS prisoners by US forces from Al-Hasakah to Al-Tanaf base in the Syrian desert, are completely untrue.
According to SOHR sources, the International Coalition periodically transports ISIS prisoners to Iraq, not to Al-Tanaf base as regime media claims, while the number of those ISIS prisoners transported to Iraq has not exceeded ten. Furthermore, the transport of ISIS prisoners to Iraq is coordinated with the north-eastern Syria region’s administration. It is worth noting that the prisoners, who have been transported to Iraq, have not been tried, and it is not known yet if they are International Coalition’s agents or wanted members of US forces. It is also worth noting that these prisoners included Syrian members.
