Military Situation In Syrian City Of Raqqah On August 31, 2017 (Map Update)

Donate

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) allegedly encircled a group of ISIS members in the areas of Darayeh and al Moroor in the  southern part of Raqqah city after they had seized a number of points in Hanah and Karim areas.

If these gains are confirmed and the SDF is able to clear Darayeh and al Moroor from ISIS units, this will become a major success for the SDF in the battle for Raqqah.

The gains in southern Raqqah will allow the SDF to increase pressure on ISIS terrorists in the central part of the city and to increase its chances to take control of entire Raqqah within 1-2 months.

    SDF did really well here. Tactically this gives them a very large advantage.

    The report contains a mistake in that it says this will make taking the central part of the city easier. The central part of the city, the old center, has already been taken by SDF. This makes for easier access to SDF where they can attack from within the city outwards too.

  • At least the Daeshtards in Raqqa have the Corporate Jones to disdain the Green Bus and fight to the death, unlike the butttasters in West Qalamoun!
