The Kurdish forces in Syria are attempting to garner sympathy after President Trump removed troops from Northern Syria last week. The Kurds are claiming that ISIS fighters are escaping custody as a consequence of the Turkish incursion against them, but President Donald Trump believes that the Kurds are likely freeing the ISIS soldiers on their own accord.
….Kurds may be releasing some to get us involved. Easily recaptured by Turkey or European Nations from where many came, but they should move quickly. Big sanctions on Turkey coming! Do people really think we should go to war with NATO Member Turkey? Never ending wars will end!

President Trump’s theory is backed up by relatives of those who were set free from camps in Ain Issa. They claim that the Kurds opened the prison doors and let women and children who were family members of ISIS members abdicate the camp.
“The Kurdish guards opened the doors to the foreign women and asked them to leave the camp,” said a mother of a 24-year-old woman who was at the Ain Issa camp for 18 months with her infant child.
“They didn’t escape. [The Kurdish forces] didn’t want them. They were expecting to be taken over by Syrian or Turkish forces, but they were kicked out. For several days, the bombs were falling closer and closer to the camp, where there were no more NGOs, no more help,” she said.
While this may seem implausible, the Kurds regularly freed ISIS militants throughout 2017 when the war against the caliphate was still being waged. The fake news and the swamp regularly gives the Kurds the lion’s share of credit for eradicating the ISIS threat in Syria, but this may not be the case.
The Kurds even publicly threatened to execute a diabolical ISIS jailbreak plan in late 2018 when President Trump previously announced a Syrian troop withdrawal plan:
America’s Kurdish allies in Syria are discussing the release of 3,200 Islamic State prisoners, a prominent monitoring group and a Western official of the anti-Islamic State coalition said on Thursday, a day after President Trump ordered the withdrawal of all American troops from the country.
Top officials of the Syrian Democratic Forces, the Kurdish-led and American-supported militia fighting the Islamic State in eastern Syria, met on Wednesday to discuss the option of releasing about 1,100 Islamic State fighters and 2,080 relatives of the group’s members, according to Rami Abdul Rahman, the head of the Syrian Observatory on Human Rights.
Mostapha Bali, the spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces, or S.D.F., denied that there had been any discussion of releasing prisoners from the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. “Any news coming from such sources is not reliable and is not coming from us,” he said.
But a Western official from the United States-led coalition fighting in Syria, which includes more than a dozen countries, confirmed that such discussions had taken place…
There have been reports that the Kurdish group was planning to withdraw its forces from front-line positions fighting the Islamic State, but there was no sign so far that had happened.
A report by the Syrian Observatory said the S.D.F. leadership was discussing the prisoners’ release because the home countries of many of them had refused to take them back. The observatory, a London-based group with a network of citizen monitors throughout Syria whose work is widely considered credible, said the prisoners come from 31 countries in addition to Syria, and their family members from 41 countries.
It appears that the Kurds are finally executing this dastardly plan, as they attempt to strong-arm President Trump into putting U.S. troops back in the region to protect them from their long-time enemies, the Turks.
