DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:00 P.M.) – With ISIS losing turf all over the battlefield of northern Syria, its commanders have opted for an attritional battle in Raqqa city while armed drones do the caliphate’s dirty work in its countryside.

In eastern Raqqa on Tuesday, two Islamic State drones dropped bombs on Kurdish-held positions in the villages of Matb Bo Rashid and Khas Dakol, resulting in an unidentified number of casualties for the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF):

With four Raqqa neighborhoods in Kurdish hands already and more to come in the near future, the last stage of the Euphrates Wrath offensive appears to be in full effect.

The SDF recently captured an armed ISIS drone over the provincial capital of Raqqa. Upon review, the drone appeared to use a simple grip-release mechanism to drop an artillery shell on enemy positions.

Is that so? So now Kurdish forces do not wear military fatigue and ride on unarmed trucks with women and children, loaded with weath sacs right? Give me a break will you! And how do we know this is ISIS drone and not US drone murdering civilians? Enlarge the photos and see for yourselves who these supposedly Kurdish fighters are! I repeat, there are only civilians in Raqqa. The civilians are being deliberately targeted for ethnic cleansing purposes. ISIS are allied to the Kurds and are now jointly fighting the Syrian Army in Raqqals countryside and in Homs-Deir Ezzur area.
