On Saturday, Syrian government officials reported that local civilians rose up against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) rule inside the provincial capital of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, resulting in the capture of 5 neighborhoods from the terrorist group.

The local civilians reportedly seized the neighborhoods of Al-Dar’ayah, Al-Rameelah, Al-Fardouss, Al-‘Ajayli, and Al-Bakri from the terrorist group.

The Syrian officials added that the people raised the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic over these districts; however, there is no footage to validate these claims.

Tensions between the foreign and Syrian ISIS fighters have reportedly caused friction inside of Raqqa City, with some local activists reporting sporadic clashes.

It is hard to verify any of these reports due to the absence of any media group inside ISIS controlled territory, but a few brave civilians living there attempt to post information, despite the harsh consequences that await them if caught by the terrorist group.

The Syrian government remains in communication with the tribes of Raqqa, who rely on their subsidized pensions from the state to buy goods.
