DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:45 A.M.) – ISIS has released another lengthy propaganda video, this time covering its inevitable loss of Raqqa, the city in northern Syria which jihadists transformed into the Islamic State capital back in 2014.

Featuring the aftermath of American airstrikes and their toll on buildings and civilians alike, the footage proceeds to show jihadists fighting for Raqqa’s countryside along with suicide bombers in action against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Later in the video, child fighters are proudly put on display while the emphasis of recruitment by religious teachers during Ramadan is underlined by the Islamic State.

Viewer discretion is advised – the video is intended for educational purposes only:

At the moment, roughly 15% of Raqqa city is under Kurdish control while heavy clashes are ongoing in several neighborhoods.

On Wednesday evening however, ISIS retook the southern part of the Division 17 Army Base which has now changed hands a handful of times this month.

There is no joint effort to fight ISIS. Only the Syrian Army and its allies are fighting ISIS no one else, and ISIS together with all other illegal armed groups including the US and uts coalition onvaders and the Kurds are fighting the Syrian Army. I repeat, there are no ISIS in Raqqa since they were re-deployed elsewhere upon agreement with the US and the Kurdish fighters more than two months ago. A moment ago there was another confirmation of this by the US Kurdish proxies when they launched a lightning operation south to cut off the Syrian Arab Army… Read more »

Daesh and SDF are not allies: they are pawns of the same mastermind. They don’t know what the plan is and fight blindly, and both think their goals are “just” ones. The difference lays in that low ranks of Daesh are totally mislead by their chieftains on what those goals are, while Kurds think they’re *using* Americans (and westerners at large) to get their own projects fulfilled, eventually. Both are wrong, both are delusional, both are unconscious serfs of the neocons’ masterplan. Luckily – for Syria and for the “good guys” – the Mastermind has a rather simple mind and… Read more »

Oh yes they are. Why don’t look at the ethnicity of the Daesh terrorists who carried out the terror attack in Iran. They were all Kurdish.
