'Euphrates Wrath' Operations continue to close in on ISIS

Fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces, within the Euphrates Wrath operations, continue their advance towards al-Raqqa. Along their route to al-Raqqa from Ain Issa, the SDF base for operations, residents have raised white flags above their homes, to show their support for the ensuing forces.

“We are the eagles of al-Raqqa and death fears us,” said one of the SDF’s fighters. “I ask every honourable person in al-Raqqah to cooperate with the Syrian Democratic Forces because ISIS will eventually lose.”

The advance of SDF forces come as the first stage to Euphrates Wrath comes to and end, with the second phase set to begin soon.
