DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:50 P.M.) – ISIS counter-attacks in Raqqa city proved short-lived as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) retook all sites lost to jihadist militants on Thursday.

After severing the last ISIS supply line to Raqqa, the predominately Kurdish SDF proceeded to retake the Equestrian City, Division 17 Army Base and Tall Biah, thereby securing advancements on the western, northern and eastern flanks of the city on Friday morning.

With steady gains underway in the battle for Raqqa, the SDF-linked Manbij Military Council meanwhile foiled an ISIS infiltration attempt on the city of Manbij.

Here, five ISIS members were detained according to a Kurdish outlet:

Ah! How very strange and convenient. The faces of the so called ISIS captives are covered in that photo and so that of the special forces (probably US or UK) so that no one can recognize or identify them.

How convenient!
