Isis ‘declares state of emergency in Raqqa’ according to US military

US military officials are monitoring reports that Isis have declared a state of emergency in Raqqa.

Social media and news reports that suggest Isis may have come under siege in its self-declared capital in Syria are being closely watched by the US-led anti-Isis coalition.

Col. Steve Warren, spokesman for the coalition said: “We have seen this declaration of emergency in Raqqa, whatever that means.”

    The last I heard, the Kurds were getting close, but they are reluctant to take on the job of governing Arabs.

    Siege? It’s more likely IS has locked down Raqqa because of desertions.

    Will Obama send them aid?
