BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – Some Russian geopolitical analysts argue that United States President Donald Trump should launch an investigation into the alleged evacuation of ISIS commanders by the US military from Syria’s Deir Ezzor province, an event which is said to have taken place two days ago.
The Russian experts made reference to the evacuation deals made between US and ISIS in Raqqa earlier this year as well as the US’s allowing of escape corridors for jihadist militants during the Soviet-Afghan War of 1979-1989.
These same Russian analysts are now convinced that the alleged air evacuation of up to 20 ISIS commanders by the US from Deir Ezzor is “almost 100-percent true.”
In any case, the US-led anti-ISIS coalition has dismissed the allegations against it.
The rumor began when a Russian military-diplomatic source supposedly told the Sputnik news agency that a US Air Force plane had evacuated ISIS battlefield leaders from the city of Deir Ezzor.
Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of Russia’s Natsionalnaya Oborona (National Defense) magazine and Franz Klintsevich, first deputy chairman of the Russian Upper House’s Defense and Security Committee, are both convinced that the alleged evacuation did take place, with the former saying to Sputnik that “we do not need any comments from the CIA or the Pentagon,” believing it to be that obvious.
