SDF fighters destroyed two ISIS VBIEDs and killed 48 ISIS fighters.

The SDF destroyed another ISIS VBIED around the national hospital in the center of Raqqa. The SDF also captured a jail and an ammo depot of ISIS in the same area during its advance today.

Meanwhile, SDF fighters evacuated 45 civilians including women and children from the ISIS-held area in the Raqqa city center.

US Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the US-led coalition, announced that the US led-collation airdropped more than 90,000 leaflets, and made loudspeaker calls on frontlines in Raqqa to notify the remaining civilians on how they could evacuate safely.

In a separated development, the SDF and the Deir Ezzor Military Council (DMZ) captured the sugar factory, electricity station north of Deir Ezzor city. The SDF and the DMZ are still 3km away from the western bank of the Euphrates River.

      That always speaks volumes when you realize the US is actually trying to create more ISIS members by intentionally killing civilians, shows they are the animals as the Judaics call them. The US has always been the most barbarous nation in its 226 years of existence by committing mass genocides of the Indian population and killing those that oppose their forms of Govt and invading and bombing countries illegally.

    How is it possible that USA is killing ISIS if their evacuete them on daily basis. Everybody knows that USA always killed popular citizens and claim their killed terrorist without any positive decreasing results of terrorist.
