BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and so-called Islamic State (ISIS) are currently negotiating the surrender of Raqqa City, the Combined Joint Task Force of Operation Inherent Resolve stated on Tuesday.

“The Raqqa Civil Council, in conjunction with local Arab tribal elders, is taking a special interest in protecting civilians and preventing a significant humanitarian crisis as the fall of Daesh’s so-called capital draws nearer,” the statement began.

Negotiations are underway to create a safe corridor for the civilians to leave the city, but this will also require the departure of the Islamic State fighters along with them.

According to Kurdish activists, an agreement was reached and the first convoy of ISIS terrorists and civilians will leave the city this week – no location was specified.

This move by the US-backed forces is contradicts their recent statements that attacked the Syrian government and Hezbollah for allowing safe passage for civilians and ISIS terrorists from eastern Lebanon.

One does not have to be the prophet Nostradamus to know where the ISIS fighters will move. 😉

Ahh..negotiating the surrender of Raqqa. Why don’t the Kurds take them back home to Kobani Kurdistan and take good care of them and baby sit them? By the way how many of these Daesh are left?
