    Sounds good. Maybe they will now be able to finish liberating the old city now that they can also attack from the south.

    Once that has been liberated, the end game will begin for Raqqah.

    SDF doing well.

      Just more fantasy from the SDF , the US can’t fight all these battles for the Kurds they are becoming complacent in their photo ops and getting hurt by attacks by IS forces.
