ISIS DECLARES A STATE OF EMERGENCY

ISIS 10

United States officials monitoring social media accounts and news reports say that the Islamic State appears to be scrambling to prepare itself against an impending attack in Raqqa, Syria.

There are reports that the Islamic State is moving equipment and fighters in and around the city, presumably in the expectation that local forces will try to capture it.

Raqqa has been an ISIS stronghold for much of the war in Syria. The terror group controls more than half of Syria.

Col. Steve Warren, the spokesman for an anti-ISIS coalition led by the U.S., said on Friday that the terrorist group appeared to be anticipating a conflict in their self-declared capital. “We have seen this declaration of emergency in Raqqa, whatever that means,” he said. “We know this enemy feels threatened, as they should.”

Though U.S. officials have not confirmed whether ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is still in Raqqa, they are operating under the assumption that he is.
