US military choppers airlift Daesh terrorists to camps in Syria’s Hasakah before transfer to al-Tanf base: Report

US occupation forces have airlifted dozens of members of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group from a prison in Syria's northeastern province of Hasakah to nearby military facilities before transferring them to a major base in the strategic al-Tanf region, near the borders with Iraq and Jordan.

Syria’s official news agency SANA, citing local sources, reported that US military helicopters transferred the Daesh extremists from the Industrial Secondary Prison, which is under the control of the Kurdish-led and so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), to their camps in the town of al-Shaddadi and al-Omar oil field.

The Takfiri militants will be then moved to the US military base in al-Tanf region to carry out terror attacks against residential buildings, centers that provide public utility services as well as the positions of Syrian government forces.

A number of captured Daesh terrorists have already confessed to close cooperation with US military forces stationed at al-Tanf base in the central Syrian province of Homs on carrying out various acts of terror and sabotage.

During confessions broadcast on Syria’s state-run television network in May 2020, several terrorists revealed that they were instructed by American forces to target Syrian government troops in and around the ancient city of Palmyra, the Tiyas Military Airbase – also known as the T-4 Airbase, the Shaer gas field as well as nearby oil wells.

Back in April last year, SANA, citing local sources speaking on condition of anonymity, reported that a number of Daesh terrorists were being trained at the US military base in al-Shaddadi town on how to fire rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), shoulder-launched rockets as well as anti-armor and anti-aircraft missiles.

The sources added that the Takfiris were set to be transferred within a short period of time to Jazira Region in the eastern Syrian province of Dayr al-Zawr and the Syrian Desert, northeast of the capital Damascus, to attack positions of Syrian army forces, vital facilities and popular gatherings.

The US military has until recently been airlifting Daesh terrorists from one place in Syria to another in order to save them in the face of advancement and territorial gains by Syrian government forces.

American occupation troops have also transferred to safe sanctuaries hundreds of Daesh terrorists and their relatives from Syrian territories to neighboring Iraq in a number of batches.

Moreover, there have been several reports showing Washington’s direct or indirect support through its regional allies for the terrorist group over the past years.

Daesh has already been driven out of all its urban bastions both in Iraq and Syria, but its remnants carry out sporadic terror attacks in both Arab countries.
