Car bomb kills 17 ISIS members in Raqqa

17 members of the self-proclaimed ISIS group were killed, while others were wounded in the explosion of their booby-trapped vehicle, in the outskirts of Hesham Ibn Abdelmalek neighborhood in Raqqa, before using it to attack the SDF in the area.

The Syrian Democratic Forces managed to detonate the vehicle before reaching its target in the outskirts of the neighborhood, and then clashes broke out between the two sides, amid mutual artillery and rockets shelling, leaving several casualties among the IS members.

It is noteworthy that the Syrian Democratic Forces militia is now controlling 50% of the city of Raqqa, since the launch of the assault to retake the city in June 2017.

The organization is documenting all kinds of violations, and working on the accounting for the groups which committed these violations by the international community. The organization is completely independent, and does not follow any political or military bodies, whether inside or outside Syria.
