By Leith Fadel

The Islamic State (ISIL) launched a counter-assault southeast of Raqqa City, Sunday, targeting the Syrian Democratic Forces' (SDF) base near the town of Al-Akirshi.

ISIL began their assault using a suicide bomber to penetrate the SDF's defenses at the base; this attack was followed by their forces storming the installation.

According to the Islamic State's official media wing, the suicide bomber was identified as Abu Dujana Al-Darawi, a Syrian from the Dara'a Governorate.

The terrorist group managed to capture the base and seize all of the weapons stored inside of it before retreating safely back to Raqqa City on Sunday afternoon.
