BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Iraq will be receiving approximately 250 captured Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the coming hours, Al-Maaloumah News reported, citing a military expert from Baghdad.

The military expert Safaa al-Asam said the new batch of detained Islamic State terrorists will be extradited in the coming hours after an agreement was made with the Syrian Democratic Forces.

Asam said the majority of these captured Islamic State terrorists are Iraqi nationals; they will face trial inside the country.

“As many as 150 Islamic State militants surrendered to the Syrian Democratic Forces within the past few hours,” he told the news agency.

He would add that most of these ISIS fighters had entered Syria in 2017 after they suffered a devastating defeat at the city of Mosul in northwestern Iraq.

There are already several hundred waiting for the noose… IMHO, few Iraqis want to pay for their life-long jailing.

The saddest part of civilization is when a aggressor group of people commits most heinous crimes which appalls the civilization even over a long period of time and when suh group gets defeated and its group members start to surrender we have so many human rights people coming up asking the civilization to show mercy, leniency and not to give capital punishment etc.
