BBC IS may be down but it is not out

Its capture would isolate the de facto IS capital of Raqqa from its last key supply route coming from Turkey.
This follows similar efforts to cut lines of communication between Raqqa and Mosul in northern Iraq.
The Syrian government - backed by its own and Russian air power - has launched fresh offensives of its own, both in and around Aleppo.
It has also secured a finger of territory extending north westwards from the road junction at Ithriya, towards Raqqa.

Can you explain this? Thanks.
