Detailed story on attacks on Raqqa surfaces on Twitter


I saw a bizarre story on Raqqa in Arabic in my Twitter feed, which suggests that air strikes are happening and Kurdish fighters are involved, the link here.

The English in the Google translation was a bit muddy and hard to follow.  There is a very interesting photo of the scenery around one of the borders.

CNN has a story by Marwan Hisham on what happens to Raqqa in the future, here.

NYPD and/or FBI has arrested a Brooklyn Uber driver who had traveled to Turkey and Yemen with a recent plot involving Times Square,  The New York Daily News has the details here (from Monday).
