BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) released on Sunday the first photos of the five captured foreign fighters from the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terror group.

According to the official media release from the Syrian Democratic Forces, of the five Islamic State fighters that were captured, at least two were U.S. nationals, one was an Irishman, and two others were from Pakistan.

All five of these Islamic State militants were captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate this week.

The Syrian Democratic Forces said that the five Islamic State militants were captured by their troops during the big assault on the terrorist group’s stronghold, Al-Shafah, which is east of the Euphrates River.

Of the five captured Islamic State fighters, at least one of them has been revealed as a former substitute school teacher from the United States.

Since US army will take those prisoners from SDF very soon consider those jihadists free! I still have hard time to understand where Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi disappeared. Other wanted people by US like Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi was so easy to find (and execute). This al-Baghdadi is obviously very very clever and impossible to find. Indeed, very interesting…
