BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:35 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continued their large-scale advance in the Al-Raqqa countryside on Wednesday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) positions along the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

Backed by heavy U.S. airstrikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to liberate several villages from the Islamic State terrorists, including Al-Mushayrifah, Abu Hurirah, Al-Karin, and Al-Muhamiyah in western Al-Raqqa.

As a result of their advance on Wednesday, the Kurdish forces have cutoff the Islamic State terrorists at the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway near the strategic town of Tabaqa.

With the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) cutting off ISIL near Deir Hafer and the Kurdish forces obstructing the highway near Tabaqa, the terrorist group now finds themselves in serious trouble as both entities advance in northern Syria.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
