Video footage surfaces showing ISIS leaving Raqqa under the cover of US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (Video)

“We saw them with our own eyes” – SDF fighters share footage of ISIS convoys leaving Raqqa.

An investigative report by the BBC in early November showed that a “secret deal” allowed ISIS fighters free passage to leave Raqqa, under the cover of US coalition SDF forces in early October.

Now the confirmation of the BBC’s report from SDF video footage has surfaced.

Fighters of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) confirmed from Raqqa that they had shot footage showing militants of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS) peacefully leaving Raqqa on their watch.

Thought to have been filmed towards the end of the battle for Raqqa, the footage shows buses and trucks carrying dozens of IS militants from the embattled city, according to one of the fighters.

“This is the footage we shot. We still keep them,” said the SDF fighter in late November, holding the mobile phone on which the footage was recorded.

“We saw them with our own eyes. I was on shift at the Grain Containers turnabout when IS were leaving. There were many of them, we were not afraid of them,” he said.
