TEHRAN (FNA)- Three commanders of the ISIL terrorist group have escaped from the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur with thousands of US dollars after government troops lifted the siege on the city and its airbase and entered the town, Arab media said Sunday.
The Arabic-language al-Ahd news reported that one of the senior commanders of ISIL carrying a hefty amount of money earned from smuggling crude oil has fled Deir Ezzur province along with some other ISIL members towards the Southern territories of Hasaka province controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.
Al-Ahd further reported that Mohammad Jaber Haj Razouq, ISIL’s police chief in Eastern Deir Ezzur nom de guerre Abu al-Joud, has escaped along with his family members to Turkey.
“Abu Laden Araghi, the Iraq emir of ISIL in the town of al-Mayadeen in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, has escaped from ISIL-held regions,” al-Ahd reported, adding that ISIL has offered reward for any information about him.
