In the eastern countryside of Tabqa, freight cars transported ISIS fighters from Tabqa to Raqqa. They were sitting in these cars and praising the victory they had!
Abu Ahmed, a man from Tabqa countryside, says:” The last thing I imagined is to see ISIS fighters in these cars! We used these cars to transport sheep and now ISIS fighters! They were shouting and glorifying their victory! What victory?”
ISIS fighters used to say that people of Aleppo, Zabadani, Madaya, Daraya and other places deserve the displacement because of their fight against the Islamic State, they have even accused them of being Assad supporters or Shiites.
It is very different between those who got out of their lands raising their heads in dignity after years of shelling the hunger and those who got out in sheep transportation cars after a military campaign lasted only for three weeks.
When ISIS fighters controlled Raqqa and other cities in Syria and Iraq they carried out systematic humiliating campaigns to show people their power, they did that thinking they were undefeatable and they started comparing themselves to historic Islamic leaders such as Khalid Ibn Al-Walid and Amr Ibn Al-Aas.
Today, they leave Tabqa and other places in Rural Raqqa. In every hour, they are losing new locations and getting out of them humiliated. The disaster is bigger than (the Caliphate) Al Adnani had declared that, Sykes-Picot had ended and that is right, there are a separatist state in the north, a Shiite state in the middle and others. This was the victory of the Caliphate, the destruction of Sykes-Picot borders after 90 years and establishing a separatist state instead.
