BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:25 P.M.) – The long and arduous battle for Raqqa City is finally over, the U.S. Coalition announced this afternoon.

The last remaining Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists were transported out of the city, today, and taken to an undisclosed location in Syria.

ISIS occupied Raqqa City and much of the province since their first major military campaign in Syria.

The entire Al-Raqqa Governorate is also officially free of the Islamic State and their affiliates.

U.S. “media” is taking credit for “liberating” Raqqa from ISIS in new propaganda released a few hours ago and sheeple are cheering it as a massive “victory” for the Trumptards and the United States of Terrorists.

No, they mean ‘ISIS free’ – free to continue the US regimes’ fight against the Syrian government.
