BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:05 P.M.) – The Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Units (var.

Hashd Al-Sha’abi) saved eleven members of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from being captured by the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) along the Syrian-Iraqi border this week.

According to the official media wing of the Popular Mobilization Units, their forces took in the retreating SDF fighters after they were overran by ISIS terrorists at the Syrian border.

The Popular Mobilization Units protected the SDF fighters and pushed back the Islamic State from the Iraqi border.

The SDF fighters were then given food and beverages while they rested at a local PMU base; they will be transported to Syria in the coming hours.

Below are the photos of the SDF fighters that were saved by the PMU forces:
