As dozens of terrorists are found hiding among civilians fleeing war-torn Raqqa, the US-led coalition said that “any and all negotiations” are off the table. Other than the terrorists hiding behind women and children, an estimated 500 are prepared to fight until death.

Coalition spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon said officials in the Raqqa Civil Council, whos responsibility is to govern the city after Daesh has been driven out, “are working to negotiate the safe passage of thousands of civilians being held hostage.”

But the coalition “will not support any negotiated withdrawal of fighters,” he said. The Syrian Democratic Forces claim that the city should be under their control within days.

South Korea hit by hacking attack

According to South Korean lawmaker Rhee Cheol-hee, North Korea stole thousands of military documents from the South in September 2016. The documents supposedly contained US-South Korean war plans against the North, and plans for the assassination of Kim Jong-un.

235 gigabytes of military documents were allegedly stolen from the Defense Integrated Data Center. Rhee said 80% of the information hasn’t been identified yet. “The Ministry of National Defense has yet to find out about the content of 182 gigabytes of the total (stolen) data,” the lawmaker said.

Back in May, the South Korean government said a large amount of data was stolen, and placed blame on North Korea.
