SDF Announce 312 IS Fighters Killed in 10-Day Offensive in Syria’s al-Raqqa

BEIRUT – Syrian Democratic Forces announced on Friday that 312 fighters of the Islamic State terror organization have been killed and seven captured in the 10-day offensive against the city of al-Raqqa.

In a note, the SDF pointed out that 15 of its own militia lost their lives and 21 were wounded during the fighting against the extremists.

In these 10 days, the SDF, which has the support of the international coalition and United States special forces on the ground, snatched four districts in al-Raqqa from the hands of the radicals: al-Meshlab and al-Sinaa in the east, and al-Romaniya and al-Sabahiya in the west.

In addition, the SDF have taken the ancient Hercules Castle, the former base of Division 17, a sugar factory and the village of Sahel, southwest of al-Raqqa.

They have also destroyed 10 motorbikes, five military vehicles, five car bombs and IS artillery pieces, among other materials.

The SDF recently initiated the assault on the city of al-Raqqa, considered the capital of the caliphate by the IS on June 29, 2014.
