US occupation forces have airlifted dozens of members of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group from a base in Syria's northeastern province of Hasakah to a major oil field in the neighboring province of Dayr al-Zawr.

Syria’s official news agency SANA, citing local sources, reported that US military helicopters transferred 50 Daesh extremists from their base in the town of al-Shaddadi to the al-Omar oil field in eastern Syria on Thursday.

The sources added that the Takfiris had undergone training by American forces in al-Shadadi base in order to be integrated into the so-called and US-sponsored Tribal Army militant group, which is reportedly under the command of a terrorist identified as Ahmad al-Khabil, but better known by the nom de guerre Abu Khaolah.

The sources noted that the Daesh terrorists will be prepared to carry out various acts of terror across Syria.

Back on March 31, SANA reported that the US military had airlifted 40 Daesh terrorists from a detention facility at the al-Hawl refugee camp to a base in al-Shadadi in the southern countryside of Hasakah province.

“Three US military helicopters and three attack helicopters landed in al-Shadadi base,” the report said.

Al-Hawl camp lies east of Hasakah city and is run by the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) – an anti-Damascus alliance of predominantly Kurdish militants supported by Washington.

Two Iraqi terrorists, identified as Ziyad Idris (aka Abu Saif al-Iraqi), and Najdat Masoud Rida (aka Abu Bakr al-Furati), were among those airlifted to al-Shadadi, SANA said.

The US military has until recently been airlifting Daesh terrorists from one place in Syria to another in order to save them in the face of advancement and territorial gains by Syrian government forces.

American occupation troops have also transferred to safe sanctuaries hundreds of Daesh terrorists and their relatives from Syrian territories to neighboring Iraq in a number of batches.

Moreover, there have been several reports showing Washington's direct or indirect support through its regional allies for the terrorist group over the past years.

Numerous accounts have emerged alleging airlifts, weapon airdrops and aerial support for the Takfiri militant outfit, especially as its strength diminished in Syria and Iraq.

Daesh has already been driven out of all its urban bastions both in Iraq and Syria, but its remnants carry out sporadic terror attacks in both Arab countries.

The US and its allies have also been conducting airstrikes against what they claim to be Daesh positions inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.
