ISIS is involved in destroying Raqqa’s infrastructure by selling it!

Before the international coalition has targeted the two bridges in Raqqa, the terrorist group, ISIS, moved several trucks last Thursday, the trucks were loaded with metal (iron, aluminum and copper) all of them were taken from the post, water and electricity directorates.

The number of the trucks was near 50 trucks loaded with approximately 2500 tons of metal which is 750 thousand USD on average. The convoy was secured by several military vehicles, it is predicted that these trucks were heading toward the regime controlled areas.

RBSS knew that one of Raqqa’s traders, who is called Abu Redda, is the one who made this deal between the terrorist group and the Syrian regime. It Is worth noted that this deal is not the first between the terrorist group and the Syrian regime, the mentioned trader has made several such deals between them both. Abu Redda purchases iron, oil, wheat, cotton among others from the terrorist group and sell them to the Syrian regime. These deals are one of the most important sources of funding for ISIS.

This big deal might be a sign that the terrorist group is trying to sell whatever is possible from the city’s infrastructure just like what they did before withdrawing from Ein Essa when they stole the electricity generators. So, would Raqqa face Ein Essa destiny? Or there will be a major battle in the city?.
