Since the announcement of Euphrates anger by the Syrian democratic forces to get ISIS out of the city of Raqqa, the rate of the strikes launched by the international coalition warplanes has increased. These strikes were not accurate; lots of civilians have been killed in these strikes.
RBSS documented three massacres since the beginning of the military campaign. In Jarnieh, Raqqa’s western countryside, at least 50 civilians got killed. Another massacres happened in Al Abara and Al Msherfa in the northern countryside. The most recent one was in Maezela, northern Raqqa, where 28 civilians were killed. Not a single formal reply was reported by the attackers.
No one apologized, no one admitted the error and no one promised not to do that again especially that the big battle is coming and it will be streets battle where the fight will move from neighbor to neighbor and we should not forget that ISIS banned people from fleeing the city. More than 400 thousand people are waiting for their unknown fate.
Talal Sillo, YPG spokesperson, announced that the first phase of Euphrates Anger was finished successfully and the second phase will start now. He did not mention the killed civilians at all, he asked the people of Raqqa to stay in safe places as if there is any safe place in Raqqa. This announcement was in a meeting with some people, who claim to be representatives of the Arab tribes.
It seems that Raqqa always has to choose between the bad and worse, western press are talking about reviving Raqqa after liberating it by the Syrian Democratic Forces just like they talked before about making Iraq a model country.
