The Popular Mobilization Forces declared their intention and determination to cross the Syrian borders in order to fight beside the Syrian Regime to expel ISIS from Syria. This announcement was declared by the forces’ spokesperson, Ahmed Al Asadi, last Saturday after the official recognition of involving in Mosul battle. Abu Mahdi Al Muhandis, deputy head of the mobilization, declared that their forces are not responsible for entering Mosul City, and the upcoming event will be in Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor.
Has ISIS Stupidity started to yield its fruits?
It seems that that the Stupidity made by ISIS in both Syria and Iraq has started to give its results clearly, the terrorist group and since the declaration of the Caliphate in mid 2014 started evacuating Sunni areas from their fighters such as in Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor, Palmyra, Rural Aleppo, Homs and Damascus.
The terrorist group chased and assassinated a lot of FSA leaders, and this was very clear in their speeches when they kept saying:” Fighting the apostates (free Syrian Army and the Islamic militias) is prior on fighting the enemy (Syrian regime and its allies)”
Pragmatism has its place in ISIS intellectual side, the terrorist group fights other Jihadist groups and on the other hand the group accepts the allegiance of bandits and thieves as happened in Deir ez-Zor when the group accepted some troops who were known to be thieves.
War is a trick, in the pretext of handing Sunni cities, are Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor after Palmyra?
During the battles of Euphrates Shield, ISIS has withdrawal of several locations in Aleppo’s Northern countryside such as Tal Shaier, Cement Factory and the Infantry School. The terrorist group has suddenly withdrawal of these locations and handed them to the Kurdish forces and the Syrian army in the pretext of:” Getting the infidels busy with each other is better than getting them busy with us” this was published in ISIS magazine, Al Nabaa.
In contrast, the US Defense Department announced the preparation of massive attacks over Raqqa with the help of the Kurdish forces. According to the commander of the common operations against the terrorist group in Iraq and Syria:” Training and arming some of SDF troops is a main part of Raqqa battle preparation” on the other hand come the declaration of the National Security adviser in the Iraqi government and the head of the Popular Mobilization, Falih Fayad, about their forces intention of entering the Syrian lands after Mosul.
These statements declared by the US and the Popular Mobilization about Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor raise the Turkish concerns about involving the Kurdish of Shiite troops in Raqqa battle. About Mosul battle, the Turkish president declared that his country’s army is ready to march toward Raqqa without the involvement of terrorist groups by saying:” if the International Coalition is ready to march with us, we will do whatever it takes to expel ISIS out of Raqqa but without the involvement of PKK, we do not want terrorist groups to involve”
