TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Remarkably, the blast engulfed at least four members of the US-backed ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF), all of whom are presumed dead. The incident took place in the Youth Housing District according to the ISIS-tied outlet.
Despite reports of more rapid Kurdish advances, skirmishes continued to take place in the Amin, Hena, Andulus and Al-Nahda neighborhoods on Sunday while jihadist fighters remain bogged down inside Al-Naim Boulevard and Raqqa’s Municipal Stadium.
After an almost 4-month long battle, the remaining ISIS garrison in Raqqa city is expected to capitulate within a few weeks, a military source told Al-Masdar News this evening.
In the same time, Islamic State units have finally been defeated and completely expelled from Raqqa’s countryside following a succesful mechanized offensive by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) along the Euphrates River.
