MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the document, the operation, called 'Euphrates Rage', will be carried out in coordination with US-led coalition forces.

"We urge all the international and regional forces suffering from Daesh to contribute to the elimination of the world terrorism and to provide the forces liberating Raqqa with all kinds of support, including logistic, moral and political," the communique, obtained by RIA Novosti, said.

The SDF also urged the humanitarian organizations to fulfill their duties for Raqqa residents, who would soon be liberated from Daesh.

Earlier in the day, the SDF announced the start of the military operation to liberate Raqqa from Daesh.

The operation to liberate Raqqa will be the second major offensive backed by the US-led coalition against Daesh this fall. On October 17, Iraqi troops supported by the Kurdish Peshmerga units and US-led coalition’s airstrikes launched an offensive to retake Mosul, main Daesh stronghold in Iraq.
