Syrian troops closing on Raqqa as US pounds it with chemical weapons Printer friendly page Print This

The Syrian Arab Army has captured villages in Al-Raqqa Governorate for the first time since ISIS forced Syrian troops to abandon the region to terrorists in 2013.

Syria’s elite Tiger Forces have been making remarkable progress in the race to Raqqa while the United States is also trying to get a piece of the largely symbolic self-proclaimed capital of the so-called Islamic State.

Just as they had done in their Iraqi stronghold of Mosul, ISIS fighters in Raqqa have been fleeing the city with Deir ez-Zor being their primary destination.

This comes as the US planes have been filmed dropping what appears to be the illegal chemical weapon white phosphorus on the city.

The US has not thus far commented on these reports, although the images make it clear that the US is using the same substance that the Ukrainian regime has used on the Donbass republics in the recent past.
