Leaders of the Islamic State group are leaving their Syrian stronghold of Raqa, fleeing in the face of the Arab-Kurd offensive backed by the international coalition, the US Defense Department said today.

“We are starting to see now that a lot of senior ISIS leaders, a lot of their bureaucrats… Are beginning the process of leaving Raqa,” said Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis, using an alternate acronym for the jihadist group.
