Trump wants Europe to take back Daesh captives in Syria
Tehran (KNA) - US President Donald Trump says Europe should take responsibility for those Daesh terrorists from the continent who have been captured by the US in Syria; otherwise, American forces will be “forced” to release them, as he plans to withdraw American forces from the Arab country.
“The United States is asking Britain, France, Germany and other European allies to take back over 800 ISIS fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial. The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them,” Trump tweeted on Saturday, using an acronym for Daesh.
The US president then posted a follow-up tweet in which he said it was time for European governments to step in and do their share, as Washington was not willing to watch the captured Daesh members to spread throughout the continent.
