U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIS, Brett McGurk, tweeted on Wednesday (May 24) saying that SDF fighters were now just three kilometers outside of the city of Raqqa.

“Syrian Democratic Forces in last seven days liberated 400 square kilometers around Raqqa; now poised 3km outside city,” McGurk tweeted.

With air strikes and special ground forces from the U.S.-led coalition, the SDF has been advancing on Raqqa city from the north, east and west for several months.
