BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – Despite the fact that the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are now in possession of about 50 percent of Raqqa city, there appears to be no signs of any let up in the ferocity of the battle against ISIS. If anything, firefights appear to be intensifying as Kurdish forces push into the more densely built-up inner city areas of Raqqa.

Footage recently released by the press office of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) shows savage gun battles between Kurdish forces and the Islamic State terrorist group in the streets of the strategic city.

Kurdish infantry can be seen unleashing a torrent of small-arms fire from the ruins of bombed-out buildings and residential balconies as they attempt to push forward.

Although ISIS media has not released any motion footage lately, pictures released by the terrorist group’s propaganda arm shows that the jihadist faction has also intensified its operations against Kurdish forces as the battle moves towards the city center.

Over the last two days, the terrorist group released images of four car bomb attacks it carried out in a single twelve hour period as well as of an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) strike against a cluster of Kurdish infantry.

The roaches have so much intensified their operations that they lost 5% of ground in less than 48h 😀
Could be a good idea to have an ELINT aircraft around : to upload crapaganda, the roaches surely use some sat-phone… ELINT would locate this, thus helping to pound the roach…
