Syria’s official news agency SANA, citing local sources, said on Sunday that US helicopters conducted the operation in al-Shadadi, a suburban of Hasakah, taking at least ten Daesh terrorists towards al-Badia in Dayr al-Zawr province.
The US forces have until recently been airlifting Daesh terrorists from one place in Syria to another, under the cover of darkness, in order to save them in the face of advancement and territorial gains by Syrian government forces.
The US military forces have also transferred to safe sanctuaries hundreds of Daesh terrorists and their relatives from Syrian territories to neighboring Iraq in a number of batches.
There have been many reports showing Washington’s direct or indirect support through its regional allies for the terrorist group in the past years.
Numerous accounts have emerged alleging airlifts, weapon airdrops and aerial support for the Takfiri outfit, especially as its strength diminished in Syria and Iraq.
Moreover, hundreds of Daesh terrorists escaped from Syrian jails, as Kurdish prison guards were focused on fighting back the Turkish military that has been engaged in an operation against Kurds in northeastern Syria.
The Turkish incursion officially started in October 2019 after former US President Donald Trump gave his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan the green light to proceed with his long-planned move against the Kurdish fighters.
Kurdish officials at the time said that nearly 800 Daesh prisoners had managed to escape from a prisoner camp after the Turkish offensive.

The US and its allies have also been conducting airstrikes against what they claim are Daesh targets inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.
US military convoy enters Syria’s oil-rich Hasakah from Iraq
Syrian media said that a new convoy of US trucks carrying military and logistical equipment have crossed through the al-Walid border crossing point between Iraq and Syria and been deployed in bases in north and northeast Syria.
The convoy of at least 23 vehicles, including trucks and oil tankers, headed towards their bases in Syria’s Hasakah Province.
Since late October 2019, the United States has been redeploying troops to the oil fields controlled by Kurdish forces in eastern Syria.
The Pentagon alleges that the move aims to “protect” the fields and facilities from possible attacks by Daesh, ignoring the fact that Trump had suggested that Washington sought economic interests in controlling the oil fields.
The Lebanon-based and Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network reported earlier this month that the so-called US-led military coalition was reportedly building a new base in Syria.https://if-cdn.com/CgffuvT?v=1&app=1
The military site was being built in the town of Ayn Dewar, which lies just north of the small Syrian city of al-Malikiyah.
Ayn Dewar is located in the most northeastern point of Syria, and sits on the border with Iraq and Turkey.
Syria, which has not authorized the presence of the US military in its territory, says Washington is “plundering” the country’s oil.
The presence of US forces in eastern Syria has particularly irked the civilians, and local residents have on several occasions stopped American military convoys entering the region.
