    SDF to Push into Central Raqqa in a Matter of Days



    "The shit is about to go down in Raqqa," one official who wished to remain anonymous said, adding that the assault [will] begin in the coming days."
    The Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), which lead the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in this operation to oust Islamic State (IS) militants out of the city, are armed, in ready position and awaiting orders to move forward.
    "The SDF is poised around Raqqa. They are within 3 kilometers from the north and the east, and are about 10 kilometers from the city to the west," Colonel Ryan Dillon, a US military spokesman in Baghdad, remarked.
    "The Syrian Democratic Forces have given instructions to the citizens of Raqqa to vacate," Dillon said, adding that almost 200,000 people have fled the city.
    Regarding the decision by Washington to arm the YPG, which Turkey objected to due to its classification of the YPG as a terrorist group, Dillon said that the supplied weaponry will be inventoried and that a list of all US-provided weapons will be shared with Turkey.
