Syria: US-led invaders say they may ignore surrender agreement, murder evacuees

Source: Washington Post

“The U.S.-led coalition said Wednesday it may strike a convoy of IS militants that evacuated the Lebanon border headed toward eastern Syria under a controversial agreement brokered by Hezbollah. Coalition spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon told The Associated Press the coalition has already struck a small bridge and punched a crater in a road to keep them from moving further east toward the border with Iraq. ‘We are monitoring their location in real time,’ he said, adding that the coalition ‘will not rule out strikes against IS fighters being moved.’ … The IS militants were allowed to evacuate the area in buses following a Hezbollah-negotiated deal that allows them to go to IS-held territory near the Iraqi border. Dillon said ‘we are not party to any agreements that were made by the Lebanese Hezbollah and ISIS or the (Syrian) regime.'” (08/30/17)
