US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces liberate 264 civilians in Raqqa, kill 29 ISIS fighters | ARA News

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Wednesday killed at least 29 ISIS jihadists and freed 264 civilians from the Nazlat Shehadeh neighbourhood, southern Raqqa, the SDF Media Centre reported.

“Among the main tasks of the SDF troops is to maintain the safety of civilians. The SDF factions have therefore opened safe corridors and rescued hundreds of people who had been trapped in Raqqa,” the SDF said.

“In Nazlat Shehadeh, south of the city, a group of civilians tried to reach the points liberated by our forces. However, a landmine planted by ISIS terrorists in the neighbourhood killed a number of civilians and injuring eight others, including two women,” the SDF said.
