Toll in Syria regime strikes on IS `capital` rises to 95: Monitor

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Raqa: At least 95 people were killed in Syrian regime air strikes on the Islamic State group`s self-proclaimed capital Raqa on Tuesday, a monitoring group said in a new toll.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 52 of the dead were civilians, but it had no word Wednesday on whether the others were jihadists or also civilians.

“Some of the strikes hit near to Islamic State posts,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Britain-based Observatory.

Raqa was the first provincial capital in Syria to fall from regime control, and was later overrun by IS which has used it as the capital of its so-called “caliphate”.

Raqa has also been the target of repeated air strikes by the US-led coalition fighting against the jihadists.
