The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are attempting to enter the ISIS-held town of Tabqa in the province of Raqqah.
According to pro-Kurdish sources, clashes in the area erupted early in the morning and since then SDF units have entered the outsrikts of the town, destroying at least 2 vehicles belonging to ISIS terrorists.
Tabqa and the Tabqa dam are important ISIS defense sites in the western countryside of Raqqah. If they fall, the SDF will be able to successfully develop an advance south of the ISIS self-proclaimed capital.
Yesterday, the SDF captured the villages of Abbad and Ayed Qabir that fom ISIS terrorists. The both villages are located near Tabqa.
