BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Pentagon dismissed the allegations regarding the reported evacuation of Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists from the Deir Ezzor Governorate by the U.S. Coalition.
According to the Spokesperson for the Pentagon Lt. Col. Kone Faulkner, the allegations of the U.S. Coalition evacuating 77 Islamic State terrorists from the Deir Ezzor Governorate were false.
The Syrian government has accused the U.S. Coalition of evacuating the Islamic State terrorists on a number of occasions in the past.
In addition to the allegations by the Syrian government, the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) also made similar claims regarding this alleged evacuation of Islamic State terrorists.
The U.S. is currently aiding the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in their current battle against the remaining Islamic State terrorists in the Euphrates River Valley.
