Kurdish Fighters Force ISIL to Retreat in Raqqa
The ISIL withdrew force from more positions near Um al-Tabat in the Western side of Ein Issa under the heavy attacks of the Kurdish fighters.
The village of Um al-Tabat is now under the full control of the SDF.
Scores of the ISIL terrorists were killed in the Kurdish fighters’ offensives.
The SDF that is comprised of mainly Kurdish fighters as well as a few hundred Syrian Arab dissident forces have received trainings from the US and have been provided with scanty US-coalition air support in their battles in Raqqa province in Northeastern Syria; but in Northern and Northwestern battlefronts, they have been operating alongside the YPG and received the Russian air backup in their Aleppo wars that started with the conquest of Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates early in February.
Sources said earlier today that a large number of people in the ISIL-held city of Raqqa in Northeastern Syria have joined a fresh wave of anti-terrorism campaign to voice their support for the country’s army and president.
“Civilians hoisted the Syrian Government flag across the squares of al-Sawameh, al-Dariyeh, al-Moshleb, Bab al-Baghdad and al-Barazi across city of Raqqa to show their loyalty to the Syrian army and government,” the sources said.
“Some civilians, meantime, chanted pro-government, pro-army and anti-ISIL slogans loudly across the city,” the sources added.
