ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have detained another four foreign jihadists in operations against ISIS in northern Syria, bringing the total number of foreign fighters captured in the past week up to 17. 

The four captured on January 9, and announced on Friday, are a Turk, and Afghan, and two Russians. 

They are identified as Omro Ozon Oghlo from Turkey, Abdul-Raquf Torany from Afghanistan, and Russian nationals Muhammad Jawad Khan and Osmat Atayef. 

The four ISIS members had been on a mission to “conduct terrorist attacks in Raqqa and organize hidden groups inside the city,” the SDF stated, accusing them of playing a “major role” in terror attacks in Raqqa. 

The SDF announced the capture of eight foreign fighters, including an American teenager, on January 9 and another five on January 6. 

The Kurdish-led forces are currently holding an estimated more than 1,000 foreign jihadists, plus hundreds of women and children from over 30 different countries. Their fate is uncertain. Many Western nations are resisting repatriating their nationals and the Kurds warn they may not be able to hold onto their detainees if Turkey launches a military assault against them.

Why is it that all the ISIS members I've seen pictures of are ''ugly fuckers'', never seen a good looking one yet!

@ Outsider - "Why are they not able to hold on to them?" Why should they bother, in the face of an impending invasion by Turkish terrorists? Better to let them go so they can run back to their Turkistani leaders for all the World to see ...
