SYRIA WAR: VICTIMS OF US AIRSTRIKES FOUND IN MASS GRAVE IN RAQQA

RAQQA (SYRIA), A mass grave containing the bodies of hundreds of civilians who had been killed in the US-led coalition airstrikes was found in Raqqa province.

Local sources in Raqqa were quoted by the Arabic-language al-Manar news channel as saying that a mass-grave was discovered near al-Forat sport club which contained a large number of bodies of the civilians killed in the US airstrikes when Raqqa was under Daesh control.

They added that 40 corpses have so far been taken out of the mass grave, saying that over 300 civilians have been buried in the grave.

In a relevant development in June, a mass grave of the victims of the terrorist group was found in the Center of Raqqa city.

The Arabic-language al-Manar news channel reported on Wednesday that the mass grave was discovered in the White Garden in Central Raqqa.

The big mass grave included a large number of civilians who have been killed by Daesh terrorists.

The operations to evacuate 553 corpses from a mass grave in al-Rashid stadium ended recently in Central Raqqa after two months.

Meanwhile, a new convoy of weapons and military equipment was sent by the US to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Hasaka of Syria near the borders with Iraq.

The Arabic-language Smart News website affiliated to the militants in Syria reported on Thursday that a new US military convoy was sent to the SDF in Northeastern Hasaka through Simalka passageway at the Iraqi borders with Syria.

It added that the convoy consisted of 100 trucks which carried military and armored vehicles and concrete blocks as well as oil tankers with kerosene cargos.

The US army had also dispatched military equipment to the Kurdish militias in Hasaka late last month, a media outlet reported as Washington continued all-out support for the group in Northeastern Syria.

The Arabic-language al-Watan daily quoted local sources as saying that the US-led coalition forwarded several personnel carriers and armored vehicles from Iraq to the Kurdish units stationed in Northeastern Hasaka via the Simalka border-crossing.

Analysts say the US intends to disintegrate Syria by means of the Kurdish militias deployed in the Northern and Northeastern parts of the country.
