Syrian Army raises the flag of the Syrian Arab Republc on February 2015 in Deir Al-Adas

According to Syrian government officials, the local resistance groups inside Raqqa City have liberated another 5 neighborhoods from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) after a successful campaign the day before in this provincial capital located in northern Syria.

The civilian resistance groups in Raqqa City reportedly liberated the neighborhoods of Dawar Al-Sawama’, Dawar Al-Dura’yah, Dawar Al-Meshlab, Bab Baghdad, and Dawar Al-Barazi before nightfall on Sunday.

Based on the reports released by the Syrian government officials over the last 48 hours, the civilian resistance groups have liberated a total of 10 neighborhoods from the ISIS terrorists governing the provincial capital of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

No images or videos were released from this alleged uprising; however, the government officials maintain communication with the local tribes of Al-Raqqa in order to distribute their pensions.

Many civilians inside of ISIS controlled Raqqa City still receive their government pensions, which allow them to purchase necessities and goods while under the brutal occupation of this terrorist group.

Corroborating these reports from the Syrian government were support pages for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); these social media accounts shared similar information released by the officials.

ISIS has not reported on this alleged uprising; however, the terrorist group rarely reports any losses or civilian grievances.

@leithfadel This doesn’t sound too realistic to me. Cut-throats are allowing “citizens” to “liberate” neighborhoods? Meeh.

The original site this was published is found here:

http://www.icsve.org/tunisian-foreign-fighter–uprising-inside-isis-occurs-today-in-raqqa.html

You’ll have to pardon me when I’ll have to say that I do not entirely trust the assessment made there. No sourcing, admission that they are standing by for further reports due to cut internet connection, etc.

With that said: whether it’s an actual popular uprising in Raqqa city against the scum or internal strife, ISIL are in trouble.

The website Syrian Perspective reports this is a Baathist organized attack against ISIS in anticipation of an assault from SAA, FWIW: http://syrianperspective.com/2016/03/alraqqa-exploding-baath-party-leads-assault-on-saudi-terrorists-hundreds-defect-to-saa.html#comments
