ISIS Forcing Deir Ezzur Residents to Go to Mosul Battlefield

The ISIL terrorist group arrested, at least, 200 residents of Deir Ezzur city in Eastern Syria and sent them to Mosul in Northern Iraq to help the terrorists resist against the large-scale operation of the Iraqi Army troops and popular forces.

The ISIL security forces, specially those under the command of notorious Emad al-Kamouleh, captured at least 200 young men in Deir Ezzur and dispatched them to the Syria-Iraq border to be sent to Mosul battlefield.

Local sources said that ISIL has also arrested all former members of Kata'eb al-Hor, Fatah al-Sham Front (formerly known as the al-Nusra Front) and Ahrar al-Sham, who had participated in ISIL's ideological courses, to dispatch them to Iraq's battlefields.

Reports said also on Friday that ISIL's senior official in charge of procurement of arms and ammunition in Iraq arrived in the self-proclaimed capital of the Takfiri group in Syria, calling for the rapid dispatch of more weapons and fighters to Mosul.

"Abu Balal Mesri arrived in Raqqa to talk to the group's leadership in Syria to provide ISIL's terrorists in Iraq with more arms and munitions to enable them to resist against the Iraqi army troops and popular allies," local sources said, citing ISIL low rank commanders in Raqqa.

Meantime, the Arabic-language media reported on Wednesday that the ISIL has started confiscating houses of hundreds of residents in the city of Deir Ezzur to accommodate its terrorists fleeing from Mosul in Iraq.

The ISIL's move takes place concurrent with the start of the Iraqi army's Mosul liberation operation and arrival of hundreds of terrorists from the city of Mosul in Iraq to the Eastern parts of Syria.

Over 100 foreign militants and top commanders of the ISIL arrived in Deir Ezzur after fleeing from Mosul city this week.
