The remaining settled in the Northern part of the town adjacent to the dam and continue to resist, which have little effect on that. The crackdown South of the dam and on the Northern outskirts of Tabka is a matter of several days and depends more on the fact that they want the Americans to capture the remaining part of the city without severe damage or militants waiting a couple of days of hard machining.
The Release of Tabqa will allow the Americans and the Kurds more actively develop operations to the South of Raqqa for its environment, so that today’s success (prepared by the previous weeks of fighting) is an important step on the road to the direct assault on Raqqa. US strategy associated with the environment of Raqqa, though with difficulty, but it works. The militants could only slow the implementation of this plan, but not to disrupt it.
