The Syrian Democratic Forces have captured five foreign Islamic State’s (IS) terrorists in the outskirts of Ash Shafah town in the Eastern Deir Ezzor countryside.
An SDF spokesperson said the foreign IS members were preparing a terrorist attack against the civilians who are escaping the ongoing battle around Haijin in eastern Syria.
“As a result of the operation, five terrorists originally from the United States, Ireland and Pakistan were captured”, the spokesman said.
The SDF identified the US captives as Warren Christopher Clark, who went by the war name Abu Mohammad al-Ameriki, from Texas and fellow American Zaid Abed al-Hamid, 35, known as Abu Zaid al-Ameriki. Moreover Zaid Abed al-Hamid was spotted in ISIS propaganda film “The Flames of War 2” where he promised to kill Syrian president Bashar al Assad and US president Donald Trump.
The others were Alexandr Ruzmatovich Bekmirzaev, 45, from Ireland, Fadel al-Rahman Jad, 48, and Abed al-Azem Rajhoud, 19, both from Pakistan.
