BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Turkish state-owned Anadolu Agency (article posted by Daily Sabah) said on Saturday that the U.S. Coalition and their allies from the People’s Protection offered the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) safe passage from the eastern Euphrates region to Turkey.
Citing their alleged reporters in the area, the Anadolu Agency claimed the U.S. Coalition, YPG, and ISIS held talks about transferring the latter from the eastern Euphrates to neighboring Turkey.
The Anadolu report claimed this deal was offered to the Islamic State last month; however, they added that the fighters and their family members that choose to not leave will be allowed to remain in these SDF-monitored camps in eastern Syria.
“Daesh members who don’t want to stay in the camps were promised alternative routes, including into the areas liberated following Turkish military campaigns Operation Euphrates Shield (Jarablus, Al-Rai, Azaz, Dabiq and Al-Bab districts) and Operation Olive Branch (Afrin district), or into areas controlled by the Bashar al-Assad regime,” the Anadolu report alleged.
“Under the deal, the YPG/PKK will provide a special travel document to Daesh members seeking to leave the camps”, the correspondents said, adding “with this document, Daesh terrorists and their families will be able to reside in the territories occupied by YPG/PKK.”
The Anadolu Agency claims ISIS accepted the deal, despite the fact they are currently fighting the SDF and U.S. Coalition at the Baghouz Camp as we speak.
