ISIS on the Run in Raqqa

Islamic State has declared a "state of emergency" in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the de facto capital for the terror group's self-declared Caliphate, taking seriously an announcement made by the U.S.-backed local Kurdish forces that they plan to attack the militants' stronghold.

Leaders of Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, IS and Daesh, took the decision to intensify security measures and deploy hundreds of militants around Raqqa to guard the city from a possible attack by troops of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, according to ARA News.
