Orb-gazing

"ISIS Reportedly Leaving Raqqah, US-funded SDF/YPG Suddenly Stop Their Offensive":
"ISIS terrorists are massively leaving their stronghold of Raqqah, a city in northern Syria, that has since 2014 been known as "the capital of Islamic State".

The move comes, following an alleged secret deal between the US-funded opposition group Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Kurdish separatist group YPG.

According to some unverified sources, ISIS are leaving Raqqa in order to hand it over to the SDF/YPG so they can safely cross into other ISIS-occupied areas in Iraq and Syria.

The SDF/YPG coalition has reportedly stopped its offensive against ISIS after the latter started to leave Raqqa on Tuesday.

Fears are arising, ISIS might now expand its presence in other areas of Iraq and Syria."
"Jordan Abandons Idea of Invading Syria":
"Latest announcement by Jordanian Armed Forces, however, comes amid the huge Syrian Army victories against ISIS in the southern regions of the Syrian Desert (and which have since thwarted the American dreams of taking control of Syrian-Jordanian border). 

With the latest advancements, Syrian Army managed to secure the so-called "Jordan-Damascus-Baghdad" triangle, meaning that any hopes of invading Syria from the south are now lost.  

The US side is currently acting a bit "hysterical" and has already threatened Syrian Army with consequences, should there be any more progress made."

I'm sure there are still big Yinon plans afoot, but this particular attempted Yinonization is ending with more of a whimper than a bang.
