The Italian news Agency “Aki” said that a large number of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s members started yesterday a random and rapid withdrawal from Raqqa city.
According to the agency, the streets of the city witnessed tension and abnormal movements, where some eyewitnesses stressed that “a large number of the foreign fighters had left toward Iraq.”
One of the activists in the city said that such news is not credible, highlighting the fact that some defections occurred within the organization, also some members have headed toward Iraq after the speech of the leader of al-Qaeda organization Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahri.
Al-Zawahri announced the cancellation of “the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” in Syria restricting its role in Iraq only.
Al-Zawahri indicated that al-Nusra Front has full authority over the “state” in Syria, the thing that was totally rejected by Abu Baker al-Baghdadi the leader of the “Islamic State.”
