US-BACKED SYRIA FORCE SAYS SEIZES RAQA OLD CITY FROM DAESH

US-backed fighters on Friday ousted Daesh group from Raqa's Old City, a spokesman told AFP, bringing them closer than ever to the jihadists' most well-defended positions.

"Our forces today seized full control of the Old City in Raqa after clashes with Daesh," Syrian Democratic Forces spokesman Talal Sello said, using the Arabic acronym for IS.

"We are on the edges of Daesh's security quarter in the city centre, where most of its main bases are."
