US-led coalition aircraft have, for the first time, carried out an airlift of allied fighters battling the Islamic State terror group in Syria. The Pentagon said, members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) alliance were dropped behind IS lines close to the Tabqa dam, west of the city of Raqqa. Fierce fighting was continuing around the dam, thought to be a base for hundreds of foreign fighters.
The Pentagon declined to say how many US aircraft had been used to airlift Arab members of the Kurdish-led SDF close to the Tabqa dam, on the River Euphrates west of Raqqa, a key stronghold of IS. It said the assault, conducted during darkness yesterday, took IS militants based there by surprise.
