SDF Controls 80% of Raqqa

According to Reuters, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) backed by coalition aviation liberated from ISIS militants 80% of Raqqa city.
It is also reported that the Kurdish militia opened a new front against ISIS on the northern edge of the city, the terror group’s de facto capital. It said the offensive was “a feature of the final stages of the Euphrates Wrath campaign, which is nearing its end”. For the past two days SDF liberated 5 strategic neighborhoods of the city.
Unfortunately, the liberation of Raqqa has become protracted. According to the UN, only in June, more than 170 civilians were killed as a result of hostilities and indiscriminate airstrikes. However the actual number of victims is underestimated.
