    The SDF, a coalition including the Kurdish YPG and a number of Arab and Christian groups, has apparently begun an operation to push towards the city of Raqqa. The offensive was announced at an SDF press conference in Ayn Issa.

    Raqqa has been an ISIS stronghold since early 2014. The SDF is currently around 44km from the city.
