On Thursday, Kurdish sources claimed that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have  captured 60% of Raqqa city and over 65% of the Old Raqqah area in the center of the city so far.

The SDF claimed its fighters killed over 100 ISIS fighters in the last 24 hours mainly in the northern and western parts of the city.

On August 16, the ISIS-linked Amaq news agency claimed that 32 SDF fighters were killed or injured after an ISIS VBIED targeted their position near “al-Jamia’a al Kabaier” – the Grand Mosque – in the eastern part of Raqqa city. Amaq also announced that another VBIED targeted a SDF position near al-Salam hospital in the center of Raqqa city.

The US-led collation said that its warplanes conducted 20 airstrikes in the last 24 hours on ISIS positions in Raqqa city. Opposition sources claimed that at least 14 civilians were killed in the few last days due to the US airstrikes on Raqqa city.

The SDF is now advancing in the center of Raqqa city in order to capture the old Raqqa area which is considered the most fortified area in the city.

    The SDF / ISIS collaboration has exterminated most of the inadequately-armed Syrian national resistance in Raqqa.

        Whats funny? ISIS and SDF are both under the protection of USA. ISIS and SDF are nothing more than vile proxy armies for the greatest terror sponsor of them all.

        Whats really hilarious is that the US urged the PKK/PYD to change their name to legitimize them. So what was the end result? You guessed it, the KURDS got the ingenious idea of naming themselves the SYRIAN Democratic Forces, when in reality they have adopted a communist Marxist Lenin type of governing and its end result is to steal the Syrian land.

            Do you have any more ad hominem in your arsenal? Because everyone knows that insulting your adversary is a sure way to display intellectual integrity

            Don’t worry about the terrorist supporters and they seem to be quiet when they get shot down when this claim was proven false , they hold little over 50% and ISIS still holds less than 50%.

        translation: uSSa destroyed 65 % infrastructure of Raqqa and gave free passage out to ISIS

        the same scenario like in Lybia, Iraq, Afghanistan = the first you have to destroy infrstructure
