The attack on ISIL north of Raqqa

The attack is apparently not aimed at taking Raqqa but is aimed at another town that has some ties to the control of Aleppo.

It will be difficult for the Kurdish troops. The place is well defended and the attacking force must cross the Euphrates river on its approach.

This attack will probably divert ISIL from supporting its forces under attack in Falluja.
