The Syrian Democratic Forces coalition announced at a news conference in Raqqa the city was liberated from IS militants on October 20. Russian Defense Ministry compared US coalition bombing of Raqqa to destruction of Dresden in 1945.  "Raqqa has repeated the fate of Dresden of 1945, which was erased in the British-American bombarding," spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov said. The offensive in Raqqa with support from the US and the coalition began on June 6. See the images of the devastated city in this photo gallery.
