Daesh withdraws from 2 towns in Syria’s Raqqah

RAQQAH, Syria (AA) – Daesh terrorists withdrew from two towns in Syria’s northern city of Raqqah on Sunday following raids by U.S.-led coalition warplanes, according to local sources.

The coalition struck Daesh positions in the towns of Tell Abyad and Salok on Raqqah’s outskirts, local sources told Anadolu Agency.

The airstrikes have helped the PYD terrorists retake some parts of Daesh-held areas, one local source said.

The terrorist PYD group is the Syrian affiliate of the terrorist PKK organization.

According to the same sources, seven civilians and a number of Daesh terrorists were killed by the airstrikes.

On Saturday, Daesh launched a surprise attack on Tell Abyad in which several PYD terrorists were reportedly killed.
