DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:00 A.M.) – On Tuesday evening, the predominately Kurdish ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) captured an important village in an isolated Islamic State pocket at northern bank of the Euphrates River.

Advancing in the western Raqqa countryside once again, YPG units captured Yamamah village and established fire control over the Baath dam.

With dangerous mopping-up operations underway as we speak, Kurdish troops have now besieged the Baath dam from two directions and will likely capture the facility in the coming day, thus bringing the three major Euphrates River dams under their control.

Earlier on Tuesday, the SDF liberated four neighboring villages in western Raqqa, more on that development here. A full interactive battle map of the region created an Al-Masdar News partner website is also readily available.

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.
