DEIR EZZOR, Syria – An elite unit of the Syrian Army has just announced on its social media that it has captured over 250 ISIS terrorists in eastern Syria.

ISIS Hunters, an elite unit of the Syrian Army with the sole concentration of fighting ISIS, released a Facebook post on its official page stating that “ISIS surrendered to ISIS Hunters after several days siege of Hawijah Kate island”.

“Hunters captured more than 250 ISIS militia capitulated with lots of 7.62 and 12.7 ammunition and enough food reserves after the last way to retreat was cut off,” the statement explained.

“On November 14, Hunters joined a comb out operation of the island. ISIS was concentrated in the central and southern part of the island. At the beginning Hunters operation was complicated by heavy resistance and high-density fire. They used all range of weapons like ak-47 and machine guns hiding behind backs of local civilians,” the statement continued. 

“Nevertheless, Hunters kept moving with field artillery support. At night, our men spotted several boats heading towards the island and opened heavy fire. After several minutes of gunfire boats turned back and left their comrades on the island. The next morning ISIS started to surrender in groups of 10-15 men. Overall amount of surrendered militia is 250 men. Now Hawijah Kate island is secured,” the statement concluded.

Fort Russ News apologizes for the broken English in the statement, but we left the statement unedited and left it in its authentic presentation.

Accompanying the statement, the ISIS Hunters statement also released several photographs to corroborate their claims.
