Several sources have told RIA Novosti about the alleged transfer of Daesh commanders by “US military aviation.”
US helicopters have transferred Daesh commanders from the town of al-Mayadeen before the launch of the Syrian army’s operation, eyewitnesses told RIA Novosti.
“American military aviation first made a maneuver in the area […] near a Mayadeen farm. Then [ the aviation] launched an airstrike, we tried to hide and saw several US helicopters. There were foreign Daesh commanders on the ground, who were waiting for them next to their headquarters… The helicopters took them outside of Mayadin,” a local shepherd, Muhammad Awad Hussein, told RIA Novosti.
He further said that he allegedly saw “US aviation… first a sound from it, then a massive strike that was followed by the US helicopters’ flight and transportation of Daesh leaders after which the airstrikes ceased.”
According to the 79-year-old man he had served in the Syrian army and can distinguish American aviation.
Other locals told RIA Novosti that they have allegedly seen how cars transported two foreign Daesh commanders with their families from Mayadeen to the terrorist group’s headquarters […], after which helicopters arrived and took them in an unknown direction.
