DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:45 A.M.) – With Kurdish forces moving deeper into Raqqa, ISIS is increasing its use of suicide bombers in a desperate bid to inflict as many casualties as possible on US allies whom have encroached greatly upon what the Islamic State considers its capital city.

One such SVBIED appeared to have taken out at least a dozen members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Thursday after quickly driving around a corner only to plunge headlong into a couple military vehicles that were caught off-guard:

Thus far, Kurdish combattants have wrestled control of nearly half the city with the battle itself, known as stage five of the Euphrates Wrath offensive, soon entering its third month.

Meanwhile, Amaq Agency also published separate highly graphic footage showing collateral damage caused by US-led coalition airstrikes, including scores of heavily injured children. The video is highly graphic – viewer discretion is therefore advised:

“americian backed terrorists” – these are kurds and arabs (Syrians) giving their lives to liberate their people from ISIS. The fact that they have (some) American backing to do that is immaterial. Please grow up.
