ISWNews Analysis Group: US helicopters transported a number of former ISIS commanders from Ras al-Ain to its illegal base in al-Shaddadi.

On Wednesday morning, American helicopters carried out an airdrop operation to evacuate four individuals from the Hourana neighborhood in the city of Ras al-Ain. Interestingly, the operation was carried out without the intervention of Turkish Army and Turkish-backed militants near the Turkish border. According to available information, the transported individuals were former ISIS elements.

Following the withdrawal of US helicopters from the area, Ahrar al-Sharqiya militants, in coordination with the Turkish military, entered the homes of former ISIS commanders to conduct further investigations, detaining three people accused of links to ISIS.

Earlier, the US helicopters transported two more individuals from the Alouk area on the outskirts of Ras al-Ain to its illegal base in al-Shaddadi.

These operations show that there is close coordination between the United States and Turkish intelligence regarding the rescue of ISIS leaders. The transfer of former ISIS leaders by the Americans comes as tensions in northern Syria have escalated due to the possibility of military action by Ankara and Turkish-backed militants.

It should be noted that the city of Ras Al-Ain has been occupied by Turkish forces since 2019 during an operation called Peace Spring in northeastern Syria.
