Syria: US-backed militias clear and comb rubble-strewn Raqqa streets

Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were clearing and combing the roads of the war-ravaged city of Raqqa, Thursday, after wresting control of the city from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) earlier in the week. Once seen as IS' de facto capital, much of the city now lies in ruins, having been battered by coalition airstrikes and fighting on the ground for months. An SDF... Еще campaign leader said that “cleaning, combing and demining” operations were still ongoing, while corpses were still lying on the ground. The US-backed alliance claims it has taken control of Raqqa, but pockets of IS fighters are thought to be hiding in the city.
