The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), supported by the US-led coalition’s airpower, artillery units and military adivsers, have started storming the eastern part of the ISIS-held city of Raqqah.
According to pro-SDF sources, the SDF has already captured the Naznah area in the eastern part of the city and even entered the district of al-Mashalab.
It should be noted that Naznah is located outside tranches digged by ISIS terrorists near Raqqah. This is why this SDF advance looks very likely. At the same time, the situation in al-Mashalab is unclear.
If the SDF does not face a significant resistance in al-Mashalab, the US-backed force will be able to set up a foothold for further advances to the center of the city in this area.
