Wrath of Euphrates Operation Room announced the initiation of the second step in the operation's third phase, the main goal of which is the liberation of villages in eastern Raqqa.

Wrath of Euphrates Operation Room Spokesperson Cihan Şêx Ehmed made the announcement, in which Deir ez-Zor Military Council also participated, in the Mekmen village.

Ehmed stated that: "As the Wrath of Euphrates Operation Room, we announce the initiation of the second step in the third phase of the Operation Wrath of Euphrates after the accomplishment of the first step. In this second step, we will liberate eastern Raqqa and cut its connection with Deir ez-Zor. This step will take place with the victories of our forces.

The second step in the operation's third phase is of crucial importance for the isolation of Raqqa and the encirclement of the terrorists. Since the second part of the operation's third phase is near Deir ez-Zor, the Dêrazor Military Council will also advance from the eastern front. In this way, we will give the good news of liberation to not only the people of Raqqa but also to the people of Deir ez-Zor. Also, we thank the people of the region for their support to our forces."
