    Near al-Tanf is the Rukban refugee camp with tens of thousands of starving women and children - but it is maybe also an ISIS refuge. This fear prompts Jordan to refuse delivering any aid but water. While the US does not get anything from Jordan, it dismisses offers from Damascus to send humanitarian aid. Here, for a political reason, the US regime would accept the death of thousands of civilians. Is it because they don´t want Damascus to help or is it because this is an ISIS refuge that they use to recruit their new rebel army - fight Assad for food? Anything is possible...

    BBC:

    Abu Fawzi and dozens of other drivers were promised thousands of dollars for the task but it had to remain secret.

    The deal to let IS fighters escape from Raqqa – de facto capital of their self-declared caliphate – had been arranged by local officials. It came after four months of fighting that left the city obliterated and almost devoid of people. It would spare lives and bring fighting to an end. The lives of the Arab, Kurdish and other fighters opposing IS would be spared.

    But it also enabled many hundreds of IS fighters to escape from the city. At the time, neither the US and British-led coalition, nor the SDF, which it backs, wanted to admit their part.

    Another driver says the convoy was six to seven kilometres long. It included almost 50 trucks, 13 buses and more than 100 of the Islamic State group’s own vehicles. IS fighters, their faces covered, sat defiantly on top of some of the vehicles.

    Footage secretly filmed and passed to us shows lorries towing trailers crammed with armed men. Despite an agreement to take only personal weapons, IS fighters took everything they could carry. Ten trucks were loaded with weapons and ammunition.

    “We didn’t want anyone to leave,” says Col Ryan Dillon, spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, the Western coalition against IS.
