BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:54 A.M.) – A group of Islamic State fighters who were in the custody of US-backed forces in Syria have escaped from their captivity according to a CNN report claiming to cite an American official.

A statement from CNN’s exclusive source vaguely claimed that the break-out had happened  ‘recently’ and that the group of escapees comprised ‘less than five’ prisoners.

The exact location in Syria where the terrorist prisoners were being held has not been disclosed in CNN’s report.

There are believed to be many hundreds of ISIS fighters currently held in detention by US-backed forces at various ad-doc prison facilities across Syria’s east and northeast.

This is particularly true since US-backed forces launched their Al-Jazeera Storm operation in Deir Ezzor province in September 2017.

Russian military authorities have accused the United States of engaging in the reckless policy of retraining over one thousand ISIS detainees and then re-flagging them as ‘democratic forces.’

Surprise! Surprise! The Americans can flatten Raqqa and Mosul but can’t keep a few ISIS captive – because they’ve been “relabelled” “DMC”.

I remember that he US Peaceful Army of Angels and US-controlled democracy-loving Kurds managed to capture a large part of Syria, including Omar gas field, in one day. But they are unable to clean from ISIS some desert areas east of the Euphrates River for several months. This is a theater. The entire Western-sponsored “war for freedom” is a theater. Nothing is real but Syrian blood.
