Damascus: ISIS militants squeezed from Mosul to Syria
At the same time, before the start of the assault, the leaders of the ISIL fighters Mosul successfully left. In the city at the moment remains the ordinary cannon fodder of terrorists, on which they decided to demonstrate the full power of the American weapons and, of course, democracy.
Meanwhile, the Syrian military are rightly stating that the United States is making every effort to squeeze ISIS terrorists in the direction of Syria.
Information Agency SANA cites a statement by the press service of the High Command of the Syrian Forces:
Recall that on the eve of an attack on Mosul, representatives of the Peshmerga (Kurdish militia) unexpectedly interrupted, and the head of Iraqi Kurdistan said that "the Kurdish armed forces fulfilled their task, freeing terrorists around 200 sq. Km."
According to various estimates, before the start of the assault, the American "coalition" troops, along with the Iraqi army, in Mosul located from 6 to 18 thousands of militants of the so-called "Islamic State". How many of them are left there now, and how many have already crossed the Syrian border - no one can say.
