President Trump is weighing a plan to send hundreds of captured ISIS fighters, including the well-known jihadists & # 39; Beatles & # 39; to Iraqi prisons and Guantánamo Bay.
According to US officials quoted by NBC on Thursday, the two remaining "Beatles," Alexandar Amon Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, would be sent to Guantánamo Bay.
They are the & # 39; Ringo & # 39; and & # 39; George & # 39; of the four British terrorists who were nicknamed by other terrorists on the battlefield because of their accents.
The others are Mohammed Emwazi, also known as Jihadi John, who was killed in a drone attack in 2015, and Aine Lesley Davis, who is in a Turkish prison, leaving only Kotey and Elsheikh in the hands of President Trump, who is He has granted freedom over his destiny. by the British government.

They are currently being held in a prison in Syria by the Syrian Democratic Forces, which is fighting to contain the hundreds of ISIS fighters who have captured and continue their fight against the terrorist group.
In July, Prime Minister Theresa May stripped the two of their British citizenship and gave the US permission. UU To execute the two men if they wished.
They are currently being held in a Syrian prison along with 600 other combatants captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces, backed by the United States.

Britain now wants the United States to handle its prosecution because its ministers believe there is a greater possibility of conviction and imprisonment in the US judicial system.
Democrats oppose the plan to send the couple to Guantánamo.
They say they could turn them into martyrs and believe they should be tried in federal court, like any other defendant, instead of being held in Guantánamo, where the US You can keep them without sending them to trial.
Earlier this month, seven of the fighters were repatriated to Macedonia and eight were sent to Lebanon. US officials said they fought for months to get their countries of origin to accept responsibility for them, but none would.
Tunisia has said it will take about 150 of them, but wants to be compensated. Kazakhstan has also expressed its willingness to confront some of the combatants.
Sending them to Iraq would be a "temporary solution" and would also prevent other countries from having to go to Syria to pick them up.

British Prime Minister Theresa May relinquished responsibility for the remaining Beatles terrorists and said she supported plans for the United States to decide whether to execute them or not.
According to anonymous US officials, Iraq has not yet agreed explicitly, but the two countries are in talks about it.
The decision of the United Kingdom earlier this summer to give up responsibility for the two men and not seek guarantees for their lives was described as "rare". by British politicians.
The prime minister still has to leave a record to say unequivocally that he supports the two men who are being executed.
Instead, his representatives said only when he was asked that the United Kingdom does not support the death penalty, although he supported the Interior Minister's plan to let the United States. UU Decide whether to execute them or not.
Among them, the four terrorists massacred five Western hostages in videotaped beheadings that shocked the world and sent the fight against ISIS to the forefront of the global agenda.
