Evacuated Islamic State fighters reach Syria's Deir al-Zor: pro-Damascus commander


Baku-APA.  Buses carrying evacuated Islamic State fighters reached jihadist territory in Syria’s Deir al-Zor on Wednesday after IS released a Hezbollah prisoner, a commander in the military alliance fighting in support of Damascus, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

Damascus and Lebanon’s Hezbollah allowed a convoy of nearly 300 militants and 300 relatives to evacuate an enclave at the Syria-Lebanon border after an offensive there last month.

 

A U.S.-led coalition temporarily stopped the buses from reaching Deir al-Zor and the convoy split in two. It was unclear if all the buses arrived in Islamic State territory on Wednesday.
