According to unconfirmed Turkish media reports, both the United States and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have reached an agreement allowing the US-led coalition to use the Tabqah air base south of Tabqah town in the province of Raqqah as a US collation base.
According to local sources, American soldiers are already doing maintenance at the base, and several helicopters of the US-led coalition have alredy been deployed there.
Yesterday, ISIS managed to regain Al-Sinaa district in the eastern part of Raqqah city, and so far the US-backed SDF has still been unable to regain the district.
However, according to Kurdish sources, the SDF’s priority now is the evacuation of civilians.
