Syrian Army Troops Entered Raqqah City For First Time Since 2014: Report

On October 16, units of the Syrian Army entered the city of Raqqah, currently controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, for the first time since 2014, Russia’s RIA Novosti reported citing a local military source.

The report says that the Syrian Army already established observation posts in the area of the city.

The SDF seized Raqqah city in 2017 from the ISIS terrorist group. This became the most notable victory of the Kurdish-led force over ISIS in the course of the entire anti-ISIS effort under the patronage of the US-led coalition.

Now, when Washington abandoned its ‘local allies’ and Turkey launched a military operation against the SDF, the Syrian Army and the Russian Military Police are filling the vacuum.

my sister at my moms said we we’re tying a letter to the diplomats coattail asking for medicine food and shelter but we’d have to fend for ourselves due to lack of resources and the conditions were horrendous for them too keep the civility of a chaotic situation and it seemed they’re reply would never come so it took eminence self disciplinary actions throughout the countryside and my hats off to the people who’ve maintained the uprising for the Syrian people who’s suffering scared them for life

Hats off to what uprising? Uprising against SDF , or “uprising”/ foreign sponsored terrorists?

Big difference.
