“Over 60,000 ISIL terrorists and their families have been helped out of Baghouz region in Eastern Deir Ezzur by the US and the US-backed militants since the beginning of last December,” the Kurdish-language Bas news website quoted an informed SDF source as saying.

He noted that over half of the terrorists leaving Eastern Euphrates are Iraqi nationals, and the rest come from a variety of nations.

This comes as the US-led coalition and their allied militants are eyeing an agreement with terrorists to exit the areas under their control in Eastern Euphrates in a bid to declare the end of the ISIL in the region.

In a relevant development in late February, the Syrian sources said that the US Army transferred senior ISIL commanders to safe places in lieu of receiving over 50 tons of gold treasure from the terrorists.

According to the initial information obtained in Deir Ezzur, the US Army troops stationed in Al-Jazeera region of Eastern Euphrates agreed with the ISIL commanders to relocate them to safe places after receiving tens of tons of gold ingot that the terrorists had stolen from different parts of Syria and Iraq, the state-run SANA news agency reported.

The local sources, meantime, reported that the US Army took control of ISIL’s 50 tons of gold treasure in Baqouz region in Southeastern Deir Ezzur after it had reached an agreement with the terrorists.

They pointed to the recent intensified movements by the US choppers concurrent with flights over several ISIL-controlled regions in Eastern Euphrates, and said that the US has conducted important heliborne operations in key areas where the ISIL commanders’ hideouts are located and where the gold treasure was hidden.

In a relevant development earlier last month, a source close to Kurdish forces said that the US Army was taking ISIL’s gold treasure that is estimated to weigh around 50 tons from Eastern Syria to America.

Bas News quoted a Kurdish source as saying that the Americans have transferred tens of tons of the gold ingots they have seized from the ISIL terrorists in Baghouz region in Southeastern Deir Ezzur to their own country and only kept a small portion of the treasure to be given to the Kurdish fighters.


The source who spoke on the condition of anonymity reiterated that about 50 tons of ISIL’s gold has been sent to the US from the US military base in Kobani in Northeastern Aleppo.

The report comes as the US has been using the airport in Southern Kobani for transferring consignments and military equipment in recent years.

In a relevant development earlier last month, the US Army troops took out a sum of 40 tons of gold ingots belonging to the ISIL in heliborne operations after agreeing with the terrorist group and while Washington is preparing to announce the end of ISIL in Eastern Euphrates.

“The US troops in concordance with the ISIL terrorist group relocated big boxes packed with ISIL’s gold treasure on several helicopters from al-Dashisheh region in Southern Hasaka,” the SANA news agency quoted  local sources in Eastern Deir Ezzur as saying.

The sources pointed to boxes containing 40 tons of gold ingots that the ISIL had hidden in the Eastern part of al-Shadadi city, and said that the ISIL had stolen the treasure of gold from the Iraqi city of Mosul and different parts of Syria.

The US troops reportedly took out a group of ISIL terrorist commanders from Eastern Syria in two heliborne operations in Hajin region of Eastern Deir Ezzur and al-Dashisheh in Southern Hasaka and they were directed to the place where the gold treasure was hidden.

In a relevant development also last month, the London-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR) said the Washington-backed militants were trying to find and seize millions of dollars and at least 40 tons of gold left behind by the ISIL terrorist group.

The SOHR reported that the ISIL terrorists had stolen about 40 tons of gold and millions of dollars from the population once under their control in Iraq and Syria, which was later transferred to Eastern Euphrates in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

“The US-led coalition forces and the SDF deliberately do not target the areas under the control of the ISIL terrorists and commanders in Eastern Euphrates in Deir Ezzur as they are trying to locate this treasure by forcing the ISIL militants to speak about its location after surrendering,” it quoted informed sources as saying.

They noted that part of the cash dollars and gold have been transferred from Turkey to the areas under the ISIL control by Turkish brokers and intelligence service who have close ties with the ISIL.

Meantime, an SDF Commander, Adnan Afrin, said that the ISIL is now under the siege of the SDF in an area no larger than one square kilometers in Eastern Euphrates.

In a relevant development earlier in February, a prominent Syrian military expert revealed that Washington plans to transfer the remnants of the ISIL terrorists from Eastern Euphrates to other regions through Turkey and Iraq.

The Sputnik quoted Brigadier General Mohammad Issa as saying that less than 600 ISIL militants are stationed in a 4-km/sq region in Eastern Euphrates who will be soon evacuated from the region to foreign territories.

He added that the operations to transfer these militants will be conducted similar to the operations earlier carried out to evacuate the ISIL terrorists from Raqqa, saying that the US forces will transfer them via Iraq or Turkey to some other Arab states for future operations.

Issa questioned the US forces’ claims of fighting against the terrorist groups along with the SDF, stressing that the Syrian army will soon move to retake control over this region.

Raqqa: US Army Choppers Rescue ISIL Commanders Holding Valuable Intel

The US-led coalition helped four senior ISIL commanders to escape Raqqa province in a heliborne operation that included six helicopters flying in al-Rafedin region in al-Tabaqa town in Southwestern Raqqa, local sources in Raqqa said.

The sources, meantime, noted that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) had besieged the region where heliborne operations were conducted.

Meantime, the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik News Agency said that the relocated ISIL terrorist commanders had previously fled to Raqqa after the Syrian and Russian armies conducted military operations to set free the city of al-Qoryatayn in Homs province.

It noted that the ISIL commanders most probably have secrets of the US Army troops with them.

Media reports said last Sunday that the US army had agreed with the ISIL on the latter’s exit from areas under Washington’s control in Eastern Euphrates.

The US-led coalition troops and the SDF had reached an agreement with the ISIL terrorists on the militants’ retreat from areas under the control of the US and its allied forces, the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen TV news channel reported.

It pointed to the preparations by the ISIL to move its terrorists out of Eastern Euphrates, and said that the ISIL terrorists might be transferred to al-Anbar desert of Badiya al-Tanf in Western Iraq.

The report comes as the SDF claimed that it had started the final battle for uprooting the remaining elements of the ISIL from Eastern Euphrates.

Also the Arabic-language service of RT quoted media activists as saying on Saturday that the US-led coalition forces have carried out heliborne operations in the Eastern Badiyeh of Deir Ezzur.

It added that two US Apache helicopters have landed in Falitah region of Eastern Badiyeh of Deir Ezzur, taking away 7 big boxes whose contents were not known.

“The US is exerting political, economic and military pressure on the resistance front but they have failed so far,” al-Mousavi told reporters in a press conference at FNA in Tehran on Saturday.

He underlined that the resistance groups will not retreat in confrontation against any foreign troops planning to violate the country’s sovereignty. “History will record how we forced the US to retreat and defeated it.”

Al-Mousavi said that US President Donald Trump’s secret visit to Iraq indicated that Washington has been defeated in Iraq, adding, “The US has failed to materialize any of its occupying goals in Iraq.”

Asked about the US sanctions against al-Nujaba, he said, “We were not surprised. These sanctions show that our measures have been painful for them and we will continue this path and their sanctions against al-Nujaba are worthless in practice.”

The Al-Nujaba Movement had also earlier announced that it would double its efforts to stand against Washington’s plots in the region after it was designated by the US State Department as a terrorist group.

“We in the Islamic Resistance are proud that we are always standing in the forefront of confronting the American terrorism against the oppressed nations,” Deputy Secretary-General of al-Nujaba Movement Nasr al-Shamri told the Arabic-language Baghdad al-Youm.

“We are the ones who confront the terrorists and destructive occupation of Iraq and their (the Americans’) al-Qaeda and ISIL terrorism,” he added.

Al-Shamri underlined that al-Nujaba would confront all US plots in the region, adding that the State Department move would strengthen their determination to insist on their position.

The US added al-Nujaba Movement and its leader Akram Abbas al-Ka’abi, to its sanctions list, the State Department said.

“The Department of State has designated the Iranian proxy group Harakat al-Nujaba (HAN) and its leader, Akram ‘Abbas al-Kabi, as Specially Designated Global Terrorists under Executive Order 13224,” the State Department said in a statement last Tuesday.

Harakat al-Nujaba is an Iraqi Shiite resistance group that helped the Iraqi government liberate territory captured by the ISIL. It has also deployed forces to Syria to help the Syrian army recapture territories from terrorist groups.
