Raqqa liberation operation launched by US-backed SDF forces

30,000 U.S. backed fighters will attempt to liberate the ISIS 'captial' Raqqa from IS control.  The Syrian Democratic Forces will lead the charge.  Kurdish forces are supposedly the majority of the SDF.  According to several sources the SDF has taken control of 6 small villages in the city countryside.  The SDF know they have a hard battle in front of them but a victory would be vital in the removal of the Islamic State.
