Opposition’s operation into Raqqa:
The Burkan Al-Furat Opposition Group- a coalition of YPG (Kurdish) and FSA Fighters- have attacked ISIS controlled portions of Raqqah province from two sides- coming from the West from Kobani and coming from the East from Ras Al-Ayn. They have pushed into Tal Abyad town itself and are fighting to take control of Ayn Essa town in south-central Raqqah Province and cut ISIS off completely from the North.
