Trump: Kurdish-led Forces May Intentionally Be Releasing ISIS Militants

Monday, 14 October 2019 07:39 AM

Kurdish-led forces in northeast Syria may be releasing captive Islamic State militants to lure U.S. troops back to the area, President Donald Trump suggested Monday.

In a pair of tweets prefaced with a criticism of Brian Kilmeade of Fox News Channel's "Fox and Friends," Trump said the U.S. is "not going into another war between people who have been fighting with each other for 200 years."

He said "Kurds may be releasing some [ISIS militants] to get us involved,"  and claimed those prisoners could be "easily recaptured by Turkey or European Nations from where many came."

The Turkish onslaught in northern Syria has raised concerns that Islamic State militants and their families held by the Kurdish-led forces long allied with Washington may escape and revive the group. Scores have been said to have escaped already.
