ISIS terrorists have evacuated five districts in Syria's Raqqa, intelligence sources told The Baghdad Post on Thursday. 

The sources confirmed the reasons behind the ISIS move were still unknown. 

In 2014, Raqqa was named the capital city of the self-proclaimed Islamic Caliphate.

On Wednesday, US-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) made territorial gains in the countryside of Raqqa after annihilating two ISIS enclaves.
