“The Raqqa Liberation Campaign continues since 66 days in the eastern and western fronts. 12 neighbourhoods have been liberated within the scope of the campaign up until now.

The liberation of both neighbourhoods is a great blow to the Daesh (ISIS) gangs and a great victory for us. Thus, all the gates of the gangs in the city are closed and the circle on them is narrowed.

Over the last 3-4 days more than 600 civilians have been rescued, their needs have been met and they have been safely transported to safe areas.

We celebrate the unification of both fronts with our martyrs, our wounded, and our fighters who have fought in all positions despite all the difficult circumstances.”
