"Syrian Kurds set up body to govern Raqqa after IS defeat"
"Kurds in Syria’s Raqqa province set up a civilian assembly on Tuesday that will govern the region after the ousting of Islamic State (IS) from its capital city, local media reported. 'The city will be liberated soon and our assembly will be consolidated. Then, we will be able to deal with all the problems,' Mehmud Sewax Bersan, the administration’s newly-elected co-chair, said as quoted by the Firat news agency.The creation of the assembly was announced at a meeting in the town of Ayn Issa, north of Raqqa, the main stronghold of IS in Syria. It will consist of 14 committees."
The Syrian Kurd [in collaboration with Arab allies] with strong American backing making ready for the assault on the Islamic State capital city of Raqqa.
Planning it would seem proceeding quite well. Taking into account WHAT WILL TRANSPIRE IN THE AFTERMATH OF ISIL DEFEAT!
Prudent measures to prevent total chaos. A city more or less rendered uninhabitable by urban warfare resulting in a total dearth of essential services as is normally the case within the city setting..
Essential services to include sewage, fresh water, electricity, garbage pick-up, control and accommodations for refugees, etc. Governmental services and a return to normal in the most expeditious manner. possible. Ferreting out and exposing the inevitable ISIL stay-behind units also a must!
WITHIN THE HISTORICAL CONTEXT GENERAL MARSHAL HAVING HIS SUBORDINATES PREPARE THREE YEARS IN ADVANCE FOR THE EVENTUAL DEFEAT AND OCCUPATION OF NAZI GERMANY!
Nor is Assad or the Turk for that matter going to see the liberation of Raqqa by YPG units as a favorable event. The Kurds setting up a de facto autonomously ruled territory counter to the wishes, desires and long-term goals of the various regional despots.
