U.S. troops inside Raqqa, Daesh Syria stronghold: official

U.S. troops inside Raqqa
U.S. military advisors are operating inside the city of Raqqa, Daesh's (ISIS) last major bastion in Syria, a U.S. official said Wednesday.


The troops, many of them special operations forces, are working in an "advise, assist and accompany" role to support local fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces as they battle Daesh, said Colonel Ryan Dillon, a military spokesman.

The troops are not in a direct combat role but are calling in air strikes and are working closer to the fight than did U.S. forces supporting the Iraqi military in Mosul.
