BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continued their large-scale offensive in the western countryside of Al-Raqqa on Thursday, liberating several sites from the Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization.

The SDF targeted the Islamic State’s positions in the Tabaqa countryside, killing and wounding a large number of terrorists today.

According to Kurdish activists, the Syrian Democratic Forces liberated the villages of Safsafah Al-Shamaliyah and Safsafah Al-Jnoubiyah near the strategic town of Tabaqa in the western countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

As a result of today’s advance in the western countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, the Kurdish forces have now surrounded Tabaqa from several flanks, leaving the Islamic State terrorists surrounded.
