U.S.-Backed Syrian Forces Battle To Retake Raqqa


Following the capture of a landmark clock tower, U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces pushed further into the city of Raqqa on August 24. The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported heavy fighting in the center of the city. The fighting continues despite a UN call for a pause to let thousands of civilians escape the area. (Syrian Democratic Forces via Storyful)
