It all started out at Al-Tanf, the sprawling U.S. base unlawfully situated in Syria at the intersection of the Iraqi and Jordanian borders. A grouping of terrorists belonging to the “Commandos of the Revolution” (yawn) were captured by the Syrian Armed Forces as the terrorists traveled on a desert pathway.
According to a captured terrorist named Jaasim Al-‘Ali: “we belong to a group called Commandos of the Revolution……our group is made up of 8 persons in addition to a guide who works as a smuggler, moving people and drugs. We were on motorcycles to carry out our task when we entered a landmine field.”
He added that a number of his group was killed when the landmines blew up.
“We got lost and didn’t know where to go because our guide died. So, we started to look for a way out and continued to move until we were taken prisoner and the SAA moved us here.” (to Palmyra).
“We were sent on our mission to Raqqa Province in Al-Mansoora City.” He admitted that he came from Al-Tanf.
He also admitted to receiving thousands of dollars from their principals. The second terrorist, ‘Abdullah Al-Mashawaat” also admitted: “We got thousands of dollars to complete the task, but, all of it was in the possession of our group commander, Yazan, who was blown up by the landmines. We lost everything.”
After these rodents were padded down by the SAA, they were found to be carrying machine guns, hand grenades, ammunition, money and lots of Captagon. So, not all the money was carried by the group commander. Ah, the best laid plans of man……….
