BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:15 A.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIS) leadership has abandoned their capital city in eastern Syria after the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) recent advance in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, Al-Mayadeen News Agency reported this morning.

While this has not been confirmed, it is widely believed that the Islamic State’s leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, has left Al-Mayadeen for the border-city of Albukamal.

Furthermore, pro-government social media pages have reported over the last 48 hours that Al-Mayadeen city is empty of civilians; however, this is once again unconfirmed.

The Syrian Arab Army entered Al-Mayadeen on Friday after advancing south along the strategic Mayadeen-Deir Ezzor Highway, putting them at the northern and western gates of the city.
