A member of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has revealed to the Russian news agency Sputnik that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Wahhabi terrorist Daesh militia, is under forced surveillance by US forces in a secret location east of the Euphrates.
The SDS source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity also assured that US forces are voluntarily delaying the removal of Daesh from its last hold in the Hajine region of Deir Ezzor.
They are preventing both the SDS from advancing there and the Iraqi Hashd al-Shaabi from bombing it, he said.
“This is part of a plan to prepare and film an American commando operation in the Daesh deployment region in the southeastern province of Deir Ezzor in order to subsequently announce the arrest of Baghdadi and the end of Daesh, “he explained.
At the end of January, Sputnik recalls, a senior Iraqi official revealed that a special US force had entered Syria from Iraqi Kurdistan, along with a SDF unit.
And this after receiving information that the number one wanted Daesh member was in a 10 km2 area on the border of the Deir Ezzor province, and more precisely in a region located between Al-Baghoz in the north, al-Marachdat in the south, al-Safafnat in the west, and the alBoukamal desert linked to Iraq in the east.
“The information provided ensures that US Special Forces would like al-Baghdadi alive, and this is why US Special Forces enter areas that have fallen militarily and prohibit Kurdish militias from entering the few remaining villages even though they could easily do it with the air cover that is provided for them,” said the top Iraqi official to Sputnik.
