US-Backed Syrian Forces Push Deeper into IS Bastion of al-Raqqa

CAIRO United States-led Syrian forces freed on Sunday a neighborhood from the Islamic State terror organization in the northern city of al-Raqqa.

The Syrian Democratic Forces said in a message sent through the mobile app Telegram that they had captured Dariya district in western Raqqa.

Earlier on Sunday, the SDF announced the liberation of al-Batani neighborhood after heavy fighting that lasted from Saturday night until Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, the director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abderrahman, told EFE over the phone that the SDF had recovered parts located north of Dariya instead of the entire neighborhood, as the Kudish-led alliance had announced.

He claimed that the district of al-Batani had not been captured either, despite the information released Sunday morning by the militias.

On June 6, the SDF started an offensive to liberate al-Raqqa and managed to seize control of the towns of al-Mashlab, al-Sinaa, al-Sabahiya and al-Rumaniya, according to the SOHR.

The military alliance has also broken into the IS-held districts of al-Barid and Hittin, located west of al-Raqqa.
