Field sources disclosed on Tuesday that some groups of ISIS have hoisted flag of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) over their command posts and positions after more ISIL members escaped battlefield towards the SDF-held regions.
The sources said that more ISIS fighters have left positions in Deir Ezzur for the regions that are under the control of the US-backed SDF.
The sources went on to say that a number of ISIS snipers put aside the group’s flags and replaced them with the SDF flags.
Local sources confirmed earlier this month that the ISIS continued to surrender its positions to the SDF within the framework of its earlier agreement on the territories that it holds in Eastern Syria.
The sources reported that the ISIS delivered the town of al-Shahil in Eastern Deir Ezzur to the SDF, adding that the ISIS handed over the key town of al-Basireh to the US-backed forces.
ISIS has been pulling forces back from more positions in Eastern Deir Ezzur, handing them over to the SDF based on a secret agreement, sources affiliated to militants said.
