The SDF also announced that its fighters evacuated 20 civilians from ISIS-held areas in al-Nahdah district on September 15.

Syrian opposition sources claimed that the US-led coalition conducted more than 55 airstrikes on Raqqa city in the last 48 hours. From its side the US-led collation announced that it airplane conducted only 29 airstrikes on September 14.

    Americans are really desperate for Deir Ezzor oil and gas fields.Giving only ten days training to terrorists to guard civilians.It actually mean take the guns and kill each other.

    10 days training!
    Just to hold the fort while the rest battle in DeZ!
    Seems the US is rushing in Raqqa, dropping a lot of bombs without a thought for civilians!

    They are such a piece of shit nation! And their citizens, soooo fucking dumb!
