Meanwhile in Syria

U.S.-backed Syrian fighters fought Islamic State militants in the heart of Raqqa, the extremists’ self-styled capital, on Monday, as scores of civilians fled areas controlled by the group.

Although I think my search engine is a little off in its timeline indication, wasn't Trump recently promoting his fabulous Syrian cease-fire deal with Putin?

Two thousand and eighteen years ago.
The intensification of fighting comes a week after Iraqi forces declared victory against IS in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the largest the extremists have held. The loss of Raqqa would deal a major blow to IS, but the group still holds wide areas of the eastern province of Deir el-Zour, bordering Iraq.
