U.S.: ISIS declares state of emergency in Raqqa

14 May 2016, Nirapad News: Islamic State (ISIS) has declared state of emergency in self-declared capital through social media.

US military officials are closely watching social media and news reports that say ISIS believes it may soon come under blockade in Raqqa, Syria, its self-declared capital, CNN reports on Saturday (May 14).

‘We have seen this declaration of emergency in Raqqa, whatever that means,’ Col. Steve Warren, the spokesman for the U.S.-led anti-ISIS coalition, told reporters Friday. ‘We know this enemy feels threatened, as they should.’

Media reports have indicated that ISIS is moving personnel around the city and trying to put up covers in certain areas to shield potential targets from airstrikes and ground attacks.
