The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are pushing ahead with their mission to oust the Islamic State (IS) group from its de facto capital, Raqqa, making key gains in the east of the city. Yet as our reporters on the ground found out, the SDF are now contending with a new threat from the jihadist fighters: small, agile drones that are hampering the US-backed airstrikes.
