US-backed Kurdish fighters have launched a new offensive that aims to capture towns and villages in Raqqa province.

The aim of the operation is to isolate Raqqa from the rest of IS-held territories before storming the city itself. The new offensive by the Syria Democratic Forces was announced by spokeswoman Cihan Sheikh Ehmed. She said it is the third phase of the Raqqa operation, which began last November.
