A number of wounded Daesh* terrorists militants have been evacuated by US helicopters from Syria’s eastern Deir ez-Zor province, local sources said, as quoted by the Syrian news website Arabi Today.
On Saturday night, the militants were reportedly relocated from the town of al-Shaafah located near the Iraqi border to an unknown location.
It is not the first time that US military aircraft have been spotted transferring Daesh terrorists from embattled regions.
In late September, Syria’s SANA news agency reported that the US-led coalition performed “an air landing operation” on the outskirts of al-Marashida in order to airlift terrorist leaders to an unknown destination.
In April, SANA said that US military helicopters reportedly evacuated at least three Daesh commanders of Iraqi origin along with their family members from Tal al-Shayer region 20 kilometers southeast of the Syrian city of al-Shadadi in Hasakah province.
