Mosul offensive: ISIS militants fleeing to Syria, says tribal leader - CNN
...Sheikh Abdullah Alyawer, a tribal leader in the town of Rabia, on Iraq's border with Syria, told CNN Monday that dozens of ISIS militants and their families were fleeing the city each day, and crossing into Syria at Ba'aaj, an ISIS-controlled crossing point south of Sinjar.
The route was entirely along corridors under ISIS control, he said. Fleeing civilians with no affiliation to ISIS usually ended up in the Syrian town of al Houl, which is under Kurdish control, he said....
bth: so if not ISIS then destination is al Houl?
