‘Islamic State’ fighters evacuate as battle for Raqqa nears end

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias, were battling the last “Islamic State” (IS) fighters in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa on Sunday.

On Saturday, the SDF had agreed to a proposal that allowed Syrian IS jihadists to leave the city. IS’ foreign fighters were excluded from the evacuation deal.

“Last night, the final batch of fighters (who agreed to leave) left the city,” said SDF spokesman Mostafa Bali, adding that no foreign fighters had left the city. The SDF later said in a statement that around 275 local fighters and their families had left as part of the deal.

      I enjoy watching the crime report on the Toronto news every morning. Its not very diverse. Its always shootings and stabbings by blacks. And Mohammad seems to be a common name among them.

    I read somewhere that they’re also evacuating their bowels in their pants as they wait to be slaughtered or captured. I”ve always been a sucker for happy endings.
