BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – Yesterday, the Syrian Arab Army rescued five families in Al-Mayadeen city from Islamic State oppression.

The civilians had fled from ISIS-occupied areas of the city to Syrian Army positions where they were then moved away from the front-line.

After being rescued, members of the families talked to Syrian state media, thanking the Syrian Army and describing the challenges they faced escaping from ISIS.

According to the liberated civilians, ISIS militants are blocking non-combatants in Al-Mayadeen from fleeing the city because they intend to use them as human shields.

Al-Mayadeen has become the new Islamic State capital after the jihadist polity officially relocated its administrative center from Raqqa several months ago. The Syrian Arab Army is currently engaged in a large offensive operation aimed at expelling ISIS militants from city.

SAA is protecting millions, 85% of the country. While ISISDF is displacing and genociding the native Arab/Assyrian/Semite population in order to establish their fake Kurdistan. Shut your ignorant pie hole.
