BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 A.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have for the most part repelled a large ISIS counter-assault in Raqqa, reportedly gunning down a considerable number of jihadist militants in the process, and are now preparing to resume their own offensive stance in the city.

After having four vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED) and many hundreds of fighters thrown at their lines by ISIS, Kurdish-led forces managed to quickly recover from the initial shock of the terrorist group’s counteroffensive that was launched two days ago.

Although the city-wide attack by ISIS forced the SDF onto the defensive, the latter managed to break the onslaught before their forward-most positions, ceding very little ground in the end.

Now Kurdish-led forces are readying to renew their own offensive operations.

The failed offensive by ISIS appears to have come at considerable cost the jihadist faction’s manpower.

According to Kurdish sources, SDF fighters killed some 95 ISIS militants over the course of a 24-hour period between Monday to Tuesday.

The heading is deceptive and false. It should read: “95 native Arab civilians massacred by the invading Kurdish SDF terror squads for refusing to leave their homes.” The invading Kurdish forces campaign in Raqqa is simply a massive mopping up operation to ethnically cleanse (exterminate or eradicate) Raqqa city from the remaining native Arab inhabitants to carry out the US/Zio-Nazi project of the creation of an artificial Kurdish state called Rojava on Syrian sovereign land. There are no ISIS fighters in Raqqa.

Unfortunately comrade Nubar Ozanyan, the heroic late Rojava commander of the TKP/ML–TİKKO (Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist – Liberation Army of the Workers and Peasants of Turkey) also fell a martyr due to the Daesh pigs desperate last counter attack while being with the fighters of the International Freedom Battalion. He strived to strengthen the march of revolution, enhance the people’s struggle and the fight for freedom in every historic step he took during 40 years of his life spent in revolutionary wars at different times; in 1988-90 in Palestine, in 1991-1992 in Karabağ, Hayastan (Armenia), in 2014 in Southern Kurdistan,… Read more »

People try to use, “the latter” to often now and it sounds pretentious at this point.
