Islamic State Moves Its Capital In Syria From Raqaa To Deir el-Zour

FOX News: ISIS moves its capital in Syria

In the wake of increased airstrikes and pressure applied from three directions by U.S.-backed Syrian forces, the Islamic State has essentially moved its so-called capital in Syria, U.S. defense officials told Fox News.

ISIS is now centered in Deir ez-Zur, roughly 90 miles southeast of Raqqa, the officials said.

U.S. military drones have watched hundreds of ISIS “bureaucrats,” or administrators, leaving Raqqa in the past two months for
the city of al-Mayadin located further down the Euphrates River from Deir el-Zour where U.S. Central Command announced that it killed mid-level ISIS “operative” Abdurakhmon Uzbeki.

They are taking advantage of all the US airstrikes on the SAA and SAAF in that area,

To relocate to an area, where Twitler, given a choice between bombing ISIS, or bombing the Assad Regime Forces,

Will choose bombing Assad.

Just one more bit of love from the US to ISIS.
