BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – According to at least one ISIS member who very recently surrendered himself to pro-government forces, the terrorist group to which he belonged is “finished.”

This confession, captured by pro-government media, came about during a very brief and sombre conversation between a Hezbollah reporter and an elderly ISIS militant (who had surrendered earlier on) near the Zumrani crossing point in the western Qalamoun region of Syria.

In the footage below, the Hezbollah reporter holding the camera asks “why did you surrender?” In response, the ISIS fighter simply replies “because we’re finished.”

The video emerges at a time when some pro-government sources are reporting that over fifty (50) ISIS militants in western Qalamoun have surrendered themselves to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) amid an ongoing pro-government offensive against the terrorist group throughout the region.

The thing is now, what is to be done with ISIS POW’s ? They can never safely be allowed out of captivity for the rest of their lives.

Its a conundrum.

We all know what needs to be done. Can’t imprison thousands for decades.

If they can recognize that they are finished, it means that these are human after all and can realize their mistakes as well. My understanding is that these people have been deceived by their Zionist handlers who have now abondoned them to their fate. It is noteworthy here how the Shia militia fighters treat their prisoners. This is a great difference from the brutal treatment reserved to Syrian government troops or pilots by the US controlled terrorists conveniently called ‘moderate rebels.’ It is of yesterday the photo of the battered and b****y face of the captured Syrian pilot by the… Read more »

The solution is quite simple; imprison them incommunicado and discreetly execute them over a period of time and they will soon be forgotten.

It’s highly likely that the solution to that is in many cases a bullet. For all factions fighting IS. In Mosul they are even executing thousands of civilian collaborators, and you have to understand this as these can have crimes as bad as the militants on their ‘conscience’.

Many joined ISIS because it looked like they were winning and that it was the will of Allah. That’s what the O administration did. Trump reversed their fortunes and now it looks to them like it wasn’t the will of Allah.
