BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:35 P.M.) – U.S. military equipment was reportedly delivered to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), local journalist Mohammad Hassan claimed on Tuesday.

“A lot of New weapons and Tanks arrived to SDF to use in Raqqa battle,” Hassan posted on Twitter today.

While no tanks were shown, Mine-Resisted Ambush Protected (MRAP) all-terrain vehicles were present in the pictures that were released.

The U.S. is currently involved in helping the Syrian Democratic Forces liberate the Islamic State-held city of Raqqa in northern Syria.

Was majority Sunnis, but after the regime was driven out, so were most everyone who was not Sunni. And both Syrian and thousands of foreign Sunnis have flocked there as well. No way to be sure now, but could be 80%+ Sunnis.
