    Syrian Kurdish-led forces control almost half of Raqqa

    Posted on July 27, 2017



    BEIRUT,— A spokeswoman for a U.S.-backed Kurdish-led Syrian force and a monitoring group say opponents of the Islamic State group have captured nearly half of the extremists’ de facto capital of Raqqa.

    Nisreen Abdallah of the Women’s Protection Units, or YPJ, the female-branch of Kurdish YPG forces, told The Associated Press on Thursday that the push into the northern Syrian city has slowed down because of massive amounts of explosives laid by IS fighters.

    She said fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a coalition that includes the YPJ, now controls 45 percent of Raqqa.

    The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says SDF fighters control half the city.

    U.S regards the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party PYD and its powerful military wing YPG, which is part of Kurd-Arab SDF alliance, as key ally against Islamic State and the most effective fighting force against IS in Syria and has provided them with arms, air support as well as the military advisers.

    The YPG, which has 60,000 fighters, has seized swathes of Syria from IS.

    The SDF began an offensive to capture Raqqa on June 6, under the cover of airstrikes by the U.S-led coalition and have since captured 11 neighborhoods according to Abdullah.
