Reports have emerged that ISIS started withdrawing their heavy military equipment from from the towns of al-Qa’im, Rawah and Anah in Iraq’s Anbar province, to the Syrian desert city of Raqqa, which is also the terrorist groups defacto capital.

Much of the equipment is rocket launchers, battle tanks and armored vehicles.

This comes at a time when Mosul in Iraq’s Nineveh province is completely cut off from Syria and the terrorist group being battered by Iraqi forces, including the Kurdish Peshmerga and Shi’ite militias.

Let’s hope air-forces around take profit to offer them a remake of the infamous 1991 Highway of death…

Yes. Let them go all the way to Raqqa first.

To Rappa does not make that much sense to me. The Western backed offensives on Mosul and Raqqa drain IS military resources. The only region that is not under attack and produces oil, food and Sunni recruits is Deir Ezzor. Additionally it is the most remote area strategically. IS will IMHO have to concentrate in Deir Ezzor.

Perhaps after Aleppo is liberated we can expect a push to liberate the Deir Ezzor pocket, I’m amazed at how long they’ve been holding out.

Apparently Jesus isn’t coming back to help them.
