BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – Dozens of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorists reportedly evaded capture in eastern Syria by slipping to Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate, a new report from the Deir Ezzor Governorate claimed.

According to the report, approximately 35 Islamic State fighters escaped the town of Baghouz and made their way across eastern Syria and entered Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate.

This desperate escape to Iraq came at the same the Islamic State and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) exchanged prisoners near the Baghouz Camp in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

The SDF and ISIS reportedly exchanged 40 people each, including a number of civilians.

A source told Al-Masdar News that there are approximately 800 Islamic State fighters that are being monitored by the Syrian Democratic Forces and U.S. Coalition.

He would add that there are some fears that these 800 Islamic State fighters may attempt to escape through the desert to Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate.

SDF debe estar vigilante a lo largo de los caminos para eliminar a cada uno de ellos.
