A frighten off the Russian aviation in Raqqa

Exclusive – Raqqa is being slaughtered silently

There is a state of concern between the people in Raqqa, in fear of the Russian intervention in the Syrian conflict, which was clear to them after the targeting the city by Russian aviation, on 17-19 of last September, and the martyrdom more than 60 civilians as a result

One of the civilians said to RBSS : we knew that those raids were not by the regime because of the type of the plane and its high ability of  maneuvering , In addition to the reinforcing that it was carrying which succeeded considerable damage those planes carry 12 missiles , and that’s what we didn’t used to see with the regime planes , and according to the alliance aviation we now know what they are targeting , and all the people realizing this and they don’t have any fear of it , due to their high accuracy, even when a car is being targeted the victims are of civilians as a result of the ammunition inside that car , but the Russian aviation is like the regime aviation his first and last target is the civilians , so ISIS themselves don’t care about it because they convinced that they didn’t come to target them

The past few days there was movement of a small displacement of the civilians to the countryside around Raqqa city, for their realizing that would be much more safe for them, especially after the media publishing of an analysis said that Raqqa city is the most important stronghold and headquarters for ISIS in Syria, and the Russian aviation should target it instead of other locations

All that , pushed hundreds to think seriously about the displacement , without knowing where are they going , but they started to prepare themselves to it, either to the areas of the  free army ,countryside or turkey  , and a lot were displaced to the regime areas already , while there is a state of confusion in the ranks of ISIS , where a lot of them started to talk about their intention about leaving ISIS and going to Alnosra forehead to fight the Russians , who are considered the first enemy even before the united states, especially the Immigrants from Russian assets and countries formerly were belonging to the Soviet Union

    I’ve got friends who are claiming that Daesh is “on the ropes” because of the Russian air strikes and that they’ll be destroyed soon. While I wish that were the case, with or without Russian involvement, I know it’s noting but propaganda. It’s good to be able to get accurate information from people actually on the ground there that are living these events. I can only hope that more of them become aware of what you have done over these years.
