The Wrath of the Euphrates operation led by the Syrian Democratic Forces has forced Daesh leaders to flee Raqqa towards Deir ez-Zor, Kurdish fighters and political representatives told Sputnik.

A string of military defeats has forced Daesh leaders to flee Raqqa in northern Syria for Deir ez-Zor in the country’s east, Ewwas Eli of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) told Sputnik Turkiye.
In November 2016, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces launched the Wrath of the Euphrates military operation to liberate Raqqa and the surrounding area, with the air backing of the US-led coalition.

“The coalition air forces have recorded the movement of terrorists from the former stronghold of Raqqa towards Deir ez-Zor. Daesh leaders have fled with their families and taken light weapons, medical equipment and some other necessities from Raqqa with them.”

“Since the coalition airplanes have bombed bridges, the jihadists can’t take heavy weapons and military equipment from Raqqa. They are fleeing to Deir ez-Zor via the town of Tabqa, so when Tabqa is captured the terrorists’ escape routes will be cut off,” Eli explained.
