A secret agreement concluded between ISIS terrorists and the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS) let hundreds of ISIS fighters and their families escape from Raqqa, – BBC reported.
Early on October 12, almost 50 trucks, 13 buses and more than 100 of the Islamic State group’s own vehicles with terrorists, their families, weapons, and ammunition left the Syrian city. In light of the BBC investigation, the coalition now admits the part it played in the deal. Some 250 IS fighters were allowed to leave Raqqa, with 3,500 of their family members.
It is also noted that there was a huge number of foreigners from France, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Yemen, Saudi, China, Tunisia, and Egypt among the terrorists.
According to many experts, the U.S. ordered the SDF to release ISIS militants to oppose and prevent the success of the Syrian army on the opposite bank of the Euphrates.
