Can someone explain to us why the Lebanese army, and behind it Hezbollah and the Syrian regime forces, allowed 250 terrorist fighters from ISIS who are besieged in Jroud, the barren, mountainous border area between Lebanon and Syria to peacefully be evacuated to the Syrian city of Deir az-Zour? That’s from the far west to the far east and it’s more than 400 kilometers into the war-torn Syria.
The deal seems suspicious as it’s based on a ceasefire between the Lebanese army – though it has not fought for the past four years there – and ISIS. When it comes to this deal, it seems the Lebanese army is the one ending the siege of the murderers in exchange of taking the corpses of Hezbollah’s fighters and learning where its soldiers are buried.
The mysterious part is how will ISIS fighters go to Deir az-Zour? It’s a long journey that in the times of peace take five hoursAbdulrahman al-Rashed
