On Saturday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that its fighters captured new positions in al-Daryiah district in the western part of Raqqa city.

53 ISIS fighters were reportedly killed by the SDF in al-Mansur and al-Rashid districts in the center of Raqqa city and in Rawdah district in the eastern part of the city, and in al-Barid and al-Daryiah districts in western part of the city.

The US-led coalition dropped thousands of leaflets over al-Mansur and Shubat-23 districts in Raqqa city. According to the official SDF website, the leaflets were dropped to encourage civilians to leave the ISIS-held area, and to debunk the ISIS propaganda.

On August 18, ISIS claimed that 15 SDF fighters were killed after their position was targeted with a VBIED in the eastern part of Raqqa city. Moreover, the  ISIS-linked Amaq news agency published photos of ISIS fighters attacking SDF positions in al-Mansour district in Raqqa city.
