DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:40 A.M.) – On Tuesday evening, Amaq Agency released its first video depicting the battle for Raqqa from the Islamic State’s perspective.

The footage showed ISIS insurgents using machine-guns, homemade mortars, and automatic rifles against Kurdish troops amid close-quarter combat in the eastern Raqqa suburb of Al-Mashalab which was the first neighborhood to fall into Kurdish hands.


Over the past year, Amaq Agency has published hundreds of videos depicting the battle for Mosul. The same may happen with Raqqa city, home to over 200,000 civilians.
