#Syria: #US-Backed Force Takes 90% of #Raqqa from #Daesh
Local Editor

US-backed fighters had captured 90 percent of the Syrian city of Raqqa from the Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for "ISIS" / "ISIL"] after overrunning five strategic neighborhoods, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights which is based in the UK said Wednesday.

"Because of the heavy [US-led] coalition air strikes, Daesh withdrew from at least five key neighborhoods over the past 48 hours," the Observatory's chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

"This allowed the 'Syrian Democratic Forces' to control 90 percent of the city."
