DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:35 A.M.) – Fierce clashes continue in Raqqa city as Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) attempt to advance inside the de-facto Syrian capital of the so-called “Islamic State”.

The designated terrorist group, however, puts up stiff resistance not willing to concede the city.

As a result, counterattacks by IS jihadists inside the city and on its outskirts have been usual thing for the past several days.

One of such counterattacks took place on Sunday in Sina’a district, eastern Raqqa, when IS jihadists raided SDF positions catching the latter’s fighters off-guard:

Two SDF fighters were killed, their temporary location burned, before IS militants retreated to their starting positions.

  1. More fake casualties as SDF and ISIS have water baloon fights to kill time as US jets ween down the Syrian army to buy them time. This report is BS , they never kill eachother as they are one in the same and should never be looked at as separate entites. Wheres the gopro helmet cam footage of actual scores of fatality that they love to post as they’re fighting and killing syrian army members ??? Howcome we only ever see vague photos of them shooting into the air and dirt (But never at eachother) when they claim to be in a “firefight”??? (SDF = ISIS). (SDF\ISIS) THEY ARE ISIS AND ISIS ARE THEY AND THEY ARE THE U.S!

    • You bet! See how that ISIS fighter shoots at the air with a big grin on his face showing he is enjoying the show. This of the SDF/YPG fighting their own ISIS allies is the greatest pulling of the legs and taking for a ride of word public opinion of all time. The Syrian Arab Army needs now more urgently than ever to continue and amplify its Raqqa campaign. If Russia does not help then the Syrian Arab Army needs to ask Iran’s help, which is a much more reliable ally than Russia, even by using its medium range missiles against the terrorists of ISIS/SDF/YPG and their handlers. All the oil and gas fields in Raqqa and central Syria belong to the legitimate Syrian government and its people not to the US and the Kurdish invaders. But more urgently, the civilians still in Raqqa need to be protected from genocide by the Kurds and their US masters and the Syrian government forces have a moral imperative to do so.
