More US-Backed Militants Surrender to Syrian Army in Al-Tanf
The sources said that a group of FSA-affiliated Jeish Maqavir al-Thowrah terrorists has fled its positions in al-Tanf region and surrendered to the Syrian Army troops with their arms and military equipment.
In the meantime, a Syrian army commander said that several groups of Jeish Maqavir al-Thowrah terrorists have handed over their weapons and military hardware to the army men after they surrendered.
Also, some unofficial sources reported that the US Army has decided to leave al-Tanf base and given a 24-hour ultimatum to its militant allies to hand over their weapons.
Relevant reports said on Saturday that a 31-member group of FSA-affiliated militants defected the FSA and moved towards regions controlled by the Syrian Army troops in Southern Homs.
The sources said that one of the commanders of Jeish Maqavir al-Thowrah in Syria’s Badiyeh (desert) nom de guerre Haws al-Forati along with 30 of his forces fled the militant-held regions towards areas surrounding the army-controlled al-Tanf region.
The fleeing militants took a number of weapons, vehicles and munitions with them while fleeing.
