ISIS claimed that 53 SDF fighters were killed during the assaults. Kurdish sources argued that the SDF didn’t lose any point to ISIS.

From its side, the SDF officially announced it controls only 60% of Hittin district, while pro-Kurdish had argued last week that the entire district was under the full control of the SDF.

It became clear that ISIS improved its defense and increased its counter-attacks on SDF positions inside the city.

The US-led coalition announced that it carried out 26 airstrikes in the past 48 hours, most of them in Raqqa City to support the SDF.

It also confirmed that the Marines were working 24/24 providing a fire support for the SDF in the Battle of Raqqa.

According to opposition sources, 16 civilians including four children lost their life in Raqqa City during the past 24 hours because of the bombing of the US-led coalition.

Moreover, according to Turkish officials, the US have told Turkey that it will take back weapons supplied to the Kurdish YPG militia in northern Syria after the defeat of ISIS.

This Turkish claim is yet to be confirmed, but if true this is something that the SDF may worry about, especially after burning almost all the bridges with all other sides of the conflict.

    I wonder if ISIS will use some of its better trained units to infiltrate the US Marines artillery lines ? That would be well worth a bag of popcorn. :)

    • PZIVJ

      This must be the unit that supplies all the pretty WP fireworks over Raqqa.
      So they do put on quite a show all ready.

  • Jesus

    Why can’t ISIS drones drop some bomblets on the US marine artilery unit?
    Also, the 17th division command center was retaken by ISIS….I think it is the third time when ISIS recaptured the same base.

    • testera

      They don’t have the range.

      Wtf is wrong with you? You fucking isis lover

      • Jesus

        No, I am not an ISIS lover, I want to see them bite the hand that feeds them.

        • Gleni Polus

          Why would us feed them if there fighting isis? Btw i am not saying this as a us lover.

          • Jesus

            Because ISIS is a proxy of US, and was created by US to destabilize Middle East.

          • Gleni Polus

            And why are they fighting isis now ??

          • Bill Wilson

            The dumbass Arabs, Persians and Turks don’t need any assistance from anyone to destabilize the region.

          • Jesus

            They sure do not need dumb ass neocons to stir the pot in the Middle East.

    June 19/2017 , on Israeli News Live , it was reported that the SyAAF plane shot down was bombing ISIS units that had US embedded forces , 3 killed and seven wounded .

    • PZIVJ

      The U TUBE reporter never stated that US was embedded with ISUS. He just added on another report on the end of statement (which is probably false).
      Thanks for wasting my time :/

      • Ronald

        Excuse me , he implied they were a couple of times , going on to say , the three US dead and seven wounded have not been reported in the US .

        • PZIVJ

          Sorry, but you should check your sources before posting fake news. :(

          • Ronald

            I do stand corrected , I did think it was Israeli news , not a Christian / Israel support site .

  • Drew Andrews

    The SDF have already commandeered a whole load more gear from IS. There position in terms of ordinance is better and will continue to improve compared to what it was before they received US gear. The kurds will give any Turk a bloody nose as did Cypriots. Only better.

  • Anton

    It will take them long time until they are finished with Raqqa and US-americans intend to depopulate Raqqa.
