ISIS update 6/06/2017...ISIS planning to announce Deir Ezzur as new capital

Syrian-Iraqi War Report – June 6, 2017: ISIS Advancing In Deir Ezzor





ISIL Trying to Move Capital to Deir Ezzur after US-Backed Fighters Allow Terrorists to Withdraw from Raqqa





Local sources reported that ISIL is planning to announce Deir Ezzur city as its new capital in Syria after the US-backed Kurdish-led SDF inked an agreement with the ISIL that allows militants' exit from Raqqa city without a battle.

The sources said that while the US and the Predominately Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have permitted ISIL terrorists to leave their capital city of Raqqa without clashes, the Takfiri terrorists are moving towards Deir Ezzur in groups.

In the meantime, the Russian-language Izvestia daily reported that the agreement between the SDF and ISIL on evacuation of terrorists from Raqqa has caused intensified ISIL attacks on pro-government forces' positions in Deir Ezzur.

The paper further added that the ISIL is trying to drive the Syrian Army troops out of Deir Ezzur city to declare it as its new capital.

The daily went on to say that the Syrian General Command is about to dispatch fresh forces from Palmyra to Deir Ezzur on airplanes to join the army forces in Deir Ezzur to face ISIL as strong as possible.

Izvestia also said that the general command will possibly use Ilyushin Il-76 cargo planes they recently received from Russia in this operation.

Arab media outlets disclosed in the weekend that ISIL started withdrawing troops from West of Raqqa province following an agreement with the US-backed Kurdish forces.

According to reports, the SDF forces held talks with the ISIL to encourage the militants to withdraw from Sad al-Rashid area as well as the towns of al-Mansourah and Hanidah in Western Raqqa without any resistance, and move towards Syria's Badiyeh (desert).

Reports indicated that Washington prefers to occupy Raqqa immediately without major casualties on the US-backed forces. Also, if the ISIL leaves Raqqa without any clashes, the US will not need the SDF to occupy the city and the territories can be filled with other terrorist groups which are called by the US as moderate militants.

The Russian Defense Ministry announced in a statement that the ISIL militants continue to cross the Euphrates River in Syria from their stronghold of Raqqa despite being encircled by Kurdish and US-led coalition forces.

"At the same time, the SDF stopped its offensive, resulting in ruptures in the ISIL's ring of encirclement. Using this, the terrorists cross the Euphrates and seek to transfer their formations in the southern direction of Syria," it said.

"The command of the Russian grouping of forces in the Syrian Arab Republic will continue to take all necessary measures to prevent the breakthrough of the ISIL units from Raqqa to the provinces of Homs and Hama," it added.

According to Moscow, Russia’s Aerospace Forces thwarted two attempts by ISIL to break through to Palmyra from Raqqa in the past week.

"The first convoy of terrorists from Raqqa heading to Palmyra was destroyed by the Russian Aerospace Forces on May 25. ISIL militants made another attempt to break through to the Palmyra area on the night of May 29 to 30. Three motorcades left Raqqa under the cover of darkness and took several routes southward," the ministry said in a statement.

"The Russian Aerospace Forces hit the detected targets. The ISIL lost more than 80 terrorists, 36 cars, eight fuel trucks and 17 pickup trucks equipped with mortars and large-caliber machine guns," the ministry added.

A Russian daily said mid-March that the ISIL power was declining in Raqqa and Mosul, adding that the terrorist group was very much likely to pick up Deir Ezzur as its new self-proclaimed capital.

Izvestia newspaper reported that the ISIL has transferred its senior commanders to Deir Ezzur after its major losses in Iraq and Syria.

General Turki Hassan, a prominent military expert, told the Russian daily that the ISIL move to Deir Ezzur was not just confined to the military commanders and includes their family members too.

Also, Brigadier General Yahya Soleiman, a retired army commander, said that the ISIL decided to attack the Syrian army forces in Deir Ezzur and it launched massive offensives against the army positions near the highly important Deir Ezzur airbase in the past few days which were all repelled.

Meantime, Boris Dolgov, a Russian analyst, underlined that the ISIL was showing futile resistance because after continued defeats in Iraq and Syria, the terrorist group would be turned into an armed group not in control of any specific area which should always be on the move to find another region to base its command center there, and Deir Ezzur was their base choice to this end.

21 killed in Fresh US-led airstrike on Syria's Raqqa








More than 20 civilians have reportedly been killed in a fresh US-led coalition airstrike in northern Syria. According to a UK-based monitoring group, the coalition’s warplanes targeted civilians while they were trying to flee Daesh terrorists near the city of Raqqah. The provincial capital of Raqqah has been under the control of takfiri terrorists since 20-14. The city has been repeatedly targeted by the US-led coalition under the pretext of curbing the Daesh terror group. Washington claims its warplanes avoid civilian deaths in their bombings of Syria, but locals say most of those killed are civilians.

Kurdish-Led SDF Start Battle for ISIL's De Facto Capital as Syrian Army Advances toward Raqqa



The predominately Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have intensified attacks on ISIL's defense lines in Raqqa from three directions while the Syrian Army troops are marching on ISIL strongholds in Eastern Aleppo, inching closer to Raqqa city, the self-proclaimed capital of ISIL Caliphate, local sources said.

The sources said that the SDF fighters have launched a fresh round of operation within the framework of the Euphrates Rage Operation from three Northern, Eastern and Western directions to drive ISIL out of Raqqa city.

In the meantime, the army soldiers that liberated the town of Maskana, the last stronghold of ISIL in Aleppo on Sunday, are advancing rapidly toward Aleppo's border with Raqqa province.

A Syrian Army officer said Monday that pro-government forces moved towards Raqqa borders to start a new round of battle against terrorists after kicking ISIL out of its last stronghold in Eastern Aleppo.

The officer, who asked to remain unnamed, added that after the Syrian army troops captured Maskana on Sunday, they continued their advances against ISIL and recaptured several towns and villages nearby the strategic town.

Also, a representative of the SDF, who wished to remain anonymous, said that his forces received a batch of heavy weapons and armored vehicles from the US.

He further added that they would receive new supplies of weapons from the US in the next few days.

It is the fourth consignment of weapons sent to Syrian Kurds since President Donald Trump announced the decision to assist the Kurdish forces in Syria.

Local sources reported that the final phase of SDF forces' operation has been kicked off while news about an agreement between ISIL and the US-backed SDF on the exit of terrorists from Raqqa without any clashes has been released in recent day.

Arab media outlets disclosed that ISIL started withdrawing troops from West of Raqqa province following an agreement with the US-backed Kurdish forces.

According to reports, the SDF forces held talks with the ISIL to encourage the militants to withdraw from Sad al-Rashid area as well as the towns of al-Mansourah and Hanidah in Western Raqqa without any resistance, and move towards Syria's Badiyeh (desert).

The SDF started military Operations codenamed 'Euphrates Rage' to liberate Raqqa from the ISIL hands in November 2016.
