BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:15 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) entered the Tabaqa Airbase in the western countryside of Al-Raqqa, Kurdish activists reported this evening.

If true, the Syrian Democratic Forces would be the first group to enter this strategic Airbase since the Islamic State (ISIL) took control of the installation in August of 2014.

When ISIL took control of the Airbase, they subsequently massacred 200 Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers after marching them across the desert area near this military installation.

The Tabaqa Airbase is also considered one of the largest training grounds for new Islamic State recruits – so its potential loss could be devastating for the terrorist group, as the Kurdish forces would be within striking distance of Raqqa City’s western flank.

ISIS are giving up too easily. if we see ISIS being allowed to flee to Deir Ezzor it will be apparent that the US etc control ISIS.

Time will tell.

there is a huge flaw in that logic.

If the US was controlling ISIS, why not just let them continue in Raqqa?

if anything, they’re preparing a last stand in the city.

We know that US,NATO,Israeli aircraft have been attacking the SAA and allies and giving accurate intelligence to ISIS and Al Nusra . We know that the SAA presence in Deir Ezzor threatens to upset their plans. What we do not know is whether… Read more »

ISIS está enfrentando varios frentes y ahora que se encuentra aislado ya pronto llegará su final, pero los rezagos siempre quedan.
