or-37011

The Air Force has expanded an air base in northern Syria to assist in the fight to retake the city of Raqqa from the Islamic State.

The base is near Kobani, which is about 90 miles north of Raqqa, the last urban stronghold for ISIS in Syria. It gives the United States an additional location to launch aircraft to support U.S. and other anti-ISIS forces in the campaign to recapture the city.
