SDF Advances onto ISIL Held Raqqa
The Syrian Democratic Forces are advancing into Raqqa, the de facto "capital" of the criminal network known as ISIL which has been present in that city since 2013 and has enjoyed exclusive control over it since January 2014. The criminal network that has inflicted so much pain and misery throughout Iraq, Syria and the world now has its main stronghold under attack by the Syrian Democratic Forces.
One wishes that ISIL would simply surrender to spare the added suffering that the battle will cause but it is clear that the criminal network will not do that.
May peace soon come to Syria and Iraq.
