Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) units get closer to the ISIS-held city of Raqqa considered to be a capital of the so-called ‘Islamic Caliphate’ established by the jihadists.
Reports say SDF forces are positioned 3-5 miles away from the key city now. Kurdish forces are preparing to take a section of M6 highway, ISIS supply road, under control.
Amid sides’ preparations for battle civilians flee Raqqa for Kurdish-held territories. At least 4,000 jihadists are getting ready for the final battle for the city.
