On Monday, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) seized the a grain storage area in the central part of Raqqah from ISIS, according to the SDF media wing. The SDF as well as the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) released photos  of the area confirming this claim.

According to the YPG, clashes are still ongoing in the area amid the continued  advance of the SDF. Despite this advance, parts of Ramelah and Tishrin neighborhoods remain contested.

A pro-opposition media outlet known as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) claimed that the ISIS defense fully collapsed in central Raqqah and that the battle will be finished in few days. However, this claim is very questionable.
