US President Donald Trump has once again found himself at the epicenter of a Twitter troll-fest as he has confirmed on the micro-blogging platform that two Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for “ISIS” / “ISIL”] militants, known as the Beatles, have been taken out of Syria to a more secure location.

In the tweet, Trump has, however, made a typo, writing the "Beetles" instead of the "Beatles", which instantly set off a major firestorm on social media.

Trump's tweet follows a Washington Post report, which claimed that the US military had relocated two Daesh members, El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Kotey, transfering custody from the Kurdish forces in northern Syria ahead of the Turkish military operation in the country.

It is unclear where the two will be taken, but the newspaper quoted an unnamed senior US official as saying that they will be transferred to Iraq, ostensibly along with a group of other “high-value” detainees.

Elsheikh and Kotey were members of a four-man group of terrorists nicknamed “Beatles” because of their British origin. One member of the group was killed in a drone attack in 2015, while another one is now in a Turkish jail serving a seven-year sentence.
