Statul Islamic a declarat stare de urgenţă în propria capitală

A US military official has seen reports of ISIS declaring a state of emergency in Raqqa, its self-declared capital in Syria.

“We have seen this declaration of emergency in Raqqa, whatever that means,” Col. Steve Warren, the spokesman for the US-led anti-ISIS coalition, was cited by CNN as saying on Friday.

“We know this enemy feels threatened, as they should.”

It is believed that the militant group feels it may soon come under siege in Raqqa through air strikes and ground attacks.

“They see the Syrian Democratic Forces, along with the Syrian Arab Coalition, maneuver both to their east and to their west,” Warren said.

“Both of these areas becoming increasingly secure, and the Syrian Democratic Forces increasingly able to generate their own combat power in those areas.”

ISIS is reportedly “|moving personnel around the city and trying to put up covers in certain areas” as part of the state of emergency declaration, according to CNN.
