BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Lebanese leader of the Progressive Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, tweeted on Wednesday that the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) is under the control of the Syrian government.
“Daesh is an on-demand organization under the Syrian regime’s command,” Jumblatt tweeted this morning.
In reference to a report released by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Jumblatt said that hundreds of Islamic State fighters were transported from the Iraqi-border-city of Albukamal to the Idlib province in northwest Syria.
“Hundreds of fighters have been transported via tinted buses from Albukamal region to Idlib in an attempt to halt the Russian-Turkish agreement,” he added, deeming this incident very similar to that of the Al-Badiya where scores had been killed.
The Syrian government has yet to comment on this latest claim, as the SOHR alleged this evacuation of ISIS terrorists took place on Saturday.
