YPG and rebel factions enter the city of Ayn Isa after seizing the Brigade 93 in the north of al- Raqqa
Al Raqqa Province:
YPG, backed some rebel factions and the coalition airstrikes, could seize the Brigade 93 that is adjacent to the southwestern direction of the city of Ayn Isa in the north of al- Raqqa after violent clashes with IS militants who retreated to the east and towards the city of Ayn Isa. They also could enter into the neighborhoods located on the outskirts of the city. In case of seizing the city of Ayn Isa by YPG and the rebel factions the first defense lines of IS are going to be on the outskirts of the city of al- Raqqa. Thus, the city of Ayn Isa has toppled militarily. It is noted that thousands of people of the city of Ayn Isa displaced in the last two day towards the city of al- Raqqa that has witnessed dramatic rise in food price, including bread, because of losing communication with the Syrian- Turkish border in Tal Abyad area and the difficulty of access of foodstuffs supplies that comes through Bab al- Salamah crossing controlled by the rebel and Islamic factions. Meanwhile, the city of Tal Abyad has witnessed ample quantities of bread and foodstuffs supplies, and cheaper than the prices in IS- held areas.
