Kurdish YPG Forces Seize About 60 Villages from ISIS in Syrian Province of Raqqah

In-depth Report:

The so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces” (the Kurdish People’s Protection Units – YPG – and some Arab units) have seized about 60 villages in the Syrian province of Raqqah.

On December 20, Kurdish forces seized areas left by ISIS northwest of the al-Tabqa Dam.

On December 21, YPG units seized Ghadban, West Jabar, East Jabar and Qala’at Jaber and deployed in a striking distance from the al-Tabqa Dam.

The al-Tabqa Dam is the target of the YPG offensive.

Then, Kurdish forces will likely focus on purging ISIS terrorists from the area northwest of Raqqah.
