Ehmed released a statement on SDF website about the current situation in Raqqa. She said that SDF fighters now control over 85 percent of the city and only a few neighbourhoods left under ISIS control.

“After the mines are cleared and the rest of the neighbourhoods are captured we will announce the liberation of the city within a few days” she said.

The operation to liberate Raqqa started on June 6. SDF sources say only a few hundred ISIS gangs remain in Raqqa with a number of civilians who are being used as human shields.
