    SDF are doing fine.

    When ISIS are in their inner square or close to, I think they will take both sides of Eufrat south of Raqqa, but keeo as mousehole open making a snipers alley.

    ISIS intends to hand Raqqa to Kurds

    Apart from the mosque, there is nothing that identifies the locations (and it is the only photo that does not have the Amaq logo). Given the amount of deception that has been going on, and the suspicion that SDF and ISIS are not really having it out with each other, and that there is some kind of a sham warfare going on in Raqqah, I feel I need some proof. Buildings can be exploded for nothing, unused footage from past can be used, even bodies have been re-dressed as opposition fighters or civilians as the case may be. Please, can anyone present some solid proof here. Is that too much to ask in an age of digital mass media deception?
