  • ISIS-Held Old City of Raqqa Wall Breached in Syria

    On Tuesday, U.S.-backed forces in Syria breached the wall around Raqqa's Old City, marking a major advance in the weeks-old battle to drive ISIS militants out of their self-declared capital. According to the The U.S. Central Command, the coalition struck two "small portions" of the Rafiqah Wall, allowing the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces "to advance into the most heavily fortified portion" of the city, bypassing booby traps and snipers. The U.S. military said ISIS fighters had set up the historic wall as a fighting position, and in several openings had planted explosives. The coalition forces are making every effort to preserve the historic sites and protect civilians.

  • ISIS Still Living Among Civilians in Liberated Mosul

    Residents of ISIS's former Iraqi stronghold of Mosul have warned that extremists were still living among civilians in parts of the city liberated by U.S.-backed troops. Zuher Al-Juburi, a government-appointed city councilor in Mosul said there were hundreds of ISIS members living throughout the city. Not all of the ISIS members still living in Mosul are fighters, according to Al-Juburi. Some simply advocate the group's extreme interpretation of Islam and support it with money. On Thursday, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory over ISIS's so-called caliphate in Iraq after troops captured the city's destroyed Grand al-Nuri Mosque. The win was deeply symbolic: ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced the group's caliphate almost three years ago from the 850-year-old religious site.
