The Raqqa siege is officially over.

 

 

A fact that seems to be universally approved of by Western media (and commentators on Twitter). Can't remember any such public celebration of SAA victories.

 

Still, each side celebrates its own successes I suppose.

Certainly there will be relatively little melancholic panoramas of bombed out buildings and retelling of this or that horror stories.

The SAA now has a second crossing point on the Euphrates (the Mayadin bridge). Soon IS will have none.

That must be the only intact bridge south of the damn, as far as I know. I was actually wondering if it had been allowed to stay up.

Actually it is not intact,  damaged by bombing - but not clear if it is preventing it from being used.

Yes, hit once, but it looks like infantry have a way across

 "killed in IED attack in Saqr island of the city" - it is as far as i understand within the city. Surviving three years of siege and killed weeks after it was lifted.

Russian media confirmed https://ria.ru/syria...1507078578.html

A bit further to the south there is a blown bride at Al Asharah.

I think these might be repairable without too much difficulty, the span is not so long.

Very typical, enough damage to deny it's use, but to be repairable after the conflict. A lesson from WWII.
