Syria War 2017 – Battle for Raqqa: Kurdish YPG & SDF Forces in Urban Fighting And Firefights

War in Syria 2017 – The Battle of Raqqa is the fifth and final phase of the Raqqa campaign launched by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF and YPG) in the city of Raqqa. The battle began on 6 June 2017, and is being supported by airstrikes and ground troops from the US-led coalition. The operation was named the “Great War” by the SDF. The battle is running concurrently with the Battle of Mosul as part of an effort by the CJTF–OIR.

By 25 June, the SDF had captured the western Qadisiya district. On the following day, however, the SDF finally captured all of Qadisiya, making it the sixth district in the city under SDF control. In response, ISIL launched multiple counter-attacks in the city and on the Euphrates’ southern bank, though these failed. By the end of the day, the SDF had also taken control of al-Farkha village to Raqqa’s southwest. CJTF–OIR spokesman Ryan Dillon noted that the resistance of ISIL increased as the SDF further advanced into the city.

  1. It took >60000 US bombs and 3 years for YPG to take 12000 mi^2 from ISIS.
    It took <35000 Russian bombs and almost 2 years for SAA to take 30000 mi^2 from ISIS.
    Tell me, whose the more effective fighting force against ISIS?
    YPG fanboys, time to wipe your tears and asses LOL.

  2. The true Communists and anti-imperialist revolutionaries were the Cubans, the Vietnamese, the Columbians, Chinese, & the Soviet Russians,
    NOT the YPG who hates capitalism/imperialism yet receives 100% military and financial support from the biggest capitalist, imperialist nation on Earth LOL SUCH IRONY… SO RETARDED THE YPG FANBOYS ARE.

  3. The bravest, most underappreciated military in the Middle East is the Syrian Army. They have taken more land from ISIS in the past year alone, than Kurds have taken from ISIS in over 3 years. USAF dropped 60000 bombs in Syria and Russia has only dropped 25000. Goes to show you whose a better, more effective army and airforce in the fight against ISIS.
