Local citizens in a suburb of Syria’s Raqqa have started an uprising against arbitrary actions of groups controlled by the United States.

The Syrian Democratic Forces command and local self-government bodies appointed by the Americans have been unable to solve humanitarian problems.

The uprising of the local Arab population against arbitrary actions of groups controlled by the US began near the settlement of Al-Mansurah located some 25 km to the south-west of Raqqa.

The local Arab citizens are subjected to repressions and extortions, they are forcibly mobilized. This arouses severe discontent of local citizens. The situation in Raqqa, in northern Syria, is catastrophic.

Now that Raqqa lays in ruins, the Dresden-like decimated city picks up the pieces after liberation. The UN must set up a commission to tackle the situation in Raqqa.

Just one hospital and a maternity clinic operate in the city. The water pipeline has been out of work causing serious problems with the water supply. Water is delivered from the Euphrates River and this increases the risk of the spread of infections and epidemics.

In the governorate’s capital, where some 95,000 people have come back, “the infrastructure has been almost fully destroyed and the citizens have no access to utility and social services.

Raqqa, a stronghold of the ISIS terrorist group (outlawed in Russia), was liberated on October 17, 2017 by Arab and Kurdish units of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). They were supported by the US-led military alliance.
