TEHRAN (FNA)- The Joint Staff of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) said on Thursday that a large number of ISIL terrorists had left Syria for Afghanistan this year.
“Over 2,500 ISIL members redeployed to Afghan-Pakistani zone from Syria in 2018,” the AMN reported.
The CSTO Joint Staff then said that most of the ISIL terrorists are now concentrated in Afghanistan following their heavy losses in Syria, Iraq, and Libya.
“Afghanistan is now the principal center of the ISIL terrorists.
The CTSO report did not specify how the ISIL terrorists were transferred from Syria to Afghanistan; however, in the past, Russia has accused the US of moving these militants to the country.
Currently, the ISIL still maintains a large presence in eastern Syria, despite ongoing efforts of the US-backed forces and Syrian government troops to clear the terrorist group from this vast desert region.
In recent months, the ISIL has taken to the Syrian Desert to evade capture by the government troops and US-backed forces; this has also allowed them to carry out hit-and-run attacks against both entities.
