Three years after being established as the "capital" of the murderous Daesh regime, Raqqa has fallen. The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, backed by U.S. airstrikes and American special forces on the ground, yesterday announced they had captured the sports stadium where the so-called Islamic State had made its final stand.
