US-backed forces hold two-thirds of Syria's Raqa: monitorThe US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, now controls more than two-thirds of the Islamic State group's former Syrian stronghold Raqa, a monitor said Thursday. The SDF entered Raqa in early June, after months of fighting to encircle the city with support from the US-led coalition against IS. The militia "controls 70 percent of Raqa after taking the Al-Thakana district in the centre of the city," said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor.
