BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reported on Saturday that their troops managed to capture five foreign nationals that were fighting with the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terror organization in eastern Syria.

According to the Syrian Democratic Forces’ statement, their troops captured five foreigners, including two U.S. nationals, an Irishman, and two Pakistani nationals.

The SDF report said that the Irish ISIS fighter was a 45-year-old man who previously worked as a security guard in Dublin.

“The operation Jazeera Storm carried out with the aim of liberating the last regions under the occupation of ISIS, continues steadily towards clearing the last bastions of the group.

“ISIS, which is now cornered in a small area after being cleared from large swathes of territory it once held, is suffering heavy losses due to operations of our forces.

“Recently, in order to prevent the advance of our forces, terrorists have attempted to carry out attacks several times.

“In this context, a group of terrorists who had been preparing to attack the civilians who were trying to get out of the war zone in masses was detected.

“Following long-term technical and physical follow-up, an operation against the cell was carried out by our forces.

“As a result of the operation, five terrorists originally from the United States, Ireland and Pakistan were captured,” the statement added.
