Iranian Official: Syrian Army will Recapture Raqqa

On November 3, the Iranian adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Akbar Velayati said, that the Syrian government forces will recapture the former ISIS capital Raqqa.
“We will witness in the near future the advance of government and popular forces in Syria and east of the Euphrates, and the liberation of Raqqa city,” he said in televised comments on a visit to Beirut, as quoted by the Reuters News Agency.
Velayati noted that Iran will not permit Washington to divide Syria.
These comments by Velayati came just hours after the Syrian Army totally liberated the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate from the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).
Currently, the Syrian troops are concentrated on retaking the last territories occupied by the ISIS in eastern part of Syria – there has been no mention about Raqqa City.
