A Kurdish SDF fighter looks as smoke rises above Raqqa, Summer 2017 (Reuters)

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:05 A.M.) – A Syrian Democratic Force (SDF) volunteer from the UK recounted his experience during the deployment as a sniper, after the SDF wrestled control of Raqqa from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) earlier in the week, when speaking on the outskirts of the city, Thursday.

The SDF soldier said, “it’s been a hard-fought battle. A lot of people have died. Couple of my friends. But finally, [I have] done it. Daesh left the city.”

The soldier fought along with three other snipers who travelled to Syria to fight in the SDF in the battalion ‘2231.’

The US-backed alliance has claimed that it has taken control of Raqqa but pockets of fighters remain.
