A number of eyewitnesses have testified to Sana Agency that on 26 February 2018, two anti-Daesh Coalition’s helicopters landed at Twaimin, in the South-East of al-Shadadi. They took on board some of the Daesh officials that they were supposed to fight and transported them to the illegal US base of Sabah al-Kheir, 20 kilometres from Hassake.

Monday morning 19 March: three helicopters belonging to the US-led Coalition landed, in a location situated between the villages of Jissi and Calo, in the South East suburb of the town of Qamichli. They evacuated four Daesh officials of Iraqi origin and set off again, to where we do not know.
