Members of the Syrian Democratic Forces fire their arms during a battle against Islamic State (IS) group jihadists to retake the central hospital of Raqa on the western frontline of the city on September 28, 2017. Syrian fighters backed by US special forces are battling to clear the last remaining Islamic State group jihadists holed up in their crumbling stronghold of Raqa.

The airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, was the target of a rocket attack this week. The Taliban has claimed responsibility and the group says that U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis was intended to be in the crosshairs. Mattis had left the airport by the time the rocket hit and no one was injured.

Meanwhile, we’re learning more about how ISIS has devastated the Syrian city of Raqqa and how efforts to reclaim the city from the terror group has resulted in countless fatalities of civilians.

We focus on terror abroad and catch up on international news, including how Chad ended up on the latest version of the Trump administration’s travel ban and women behind the wheel in Saudi Arabia.
