Where did defeated ISIS fighters go?

Hundreds of foreign fighters have been allowed to escape from the former stronghold of a- Raqqa, according to a Daily Mail report. It is feared that some of the fighters, some of who are of British origin, are on their way to Europe

Some 250 ISIS terrorists and3,500 family members were reportedly allowed to leave after the group were defeated in the city in Syria last month. 

Witnesses said the fighters included ‘huge’ numbers of foreign fighters – including some English speakers – who are said to have since spread out across Syria and into Turkey, potentially en route to Europe. 

This happened despite the coalition being assured that no foreign fighters would be allowed to leave for Europe.
