Surrender or die: Daesh given ultimatum in Raqqa: Syrian opposition forces in Raqqa are ready for a final assault on the Daesh fighters who remain in what was once their stronghold in northern Syria.
The militants are hemmed into a small area in the city center that includes the stadium and the National Hospital. “Daesh is massing there because this is the last stage. They will resist, or they will surrender or die,” said the commander of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in western Raqqa, who gave his name as Ardal Raqqa.
Raqqa was Daesh’s de facto Syrian capital, a center of operations where it oversaw the management of much of eastern, central and northern Syria and planned attacks abroad.
In the hours before the final assault, which the commander said could take up to a week, the sound of gunfire sporadically rattled around the area near the hospital.
