A Colonel of the US-led operations against ISIS has claimed that their leaders of escaping to Raqqa at the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) advance on the terrorist positions in Raqqa countryside.
“We’re now seeing signs that ISIS fighters, its leaders in Raqqa, are beginning to feel the pressure. Specifically, they’re becoming increasingly paranoid,” said Colonel John Dorrian, Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman.
“They’ve increased population control measures in Raqqa by seeking to remove or destroy televisions, searching houses for mobile phones and satellite dishes in order to maintain control of news and access to information about their losses,” he added.
Since the SDF began their operations against ISIS in Raqqa countryside on February 4th, over 800 square kilometers and 100 villages have been captured.
