The report said that ISIS commanders had also emptied tens of houses in the neighborhoods of al-Firdaous, al-Thakana and Harat al-Haramiya.

ISIS had controlled the Raqqa city at the start of 2014.  There are around 500 thousand people living in the city, mainly from the areas of Palmyra, al-Sakhnah and the countryside of Aleppo and Idlib.

Meanwhile, Russia deployed six long-range supersonic Tupolev Tu-22M3 bombers from Russian territory to strike ISIS targets in the Syrian governorate of Deir Ezzor, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Saturday, according to Russia Today.

The bombers hit militant base camps, weapon stockpiles, and armored vehicles, the report said.     http://english.aawsat.com/2017/01/article55366023/isis-mass-exodus-raqqa-deir-ezzor
