Al Raqqah - SMART

On Sunday, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) said that about 61,000 civilians have returned to the city of al-Raqqah, Northeastern Syria, since the fighting stopped in the city in October last year.

The office documented the injuries of 569 civilians after several explosions occurred when they returned to al-Raqqah. The average number of explosions reached 50 incidents per week.

On Oct. 20, 2017, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) officially announced their control of al-Raqqah.  

Since 2014, when the Islamic State seized al-Raqqah, no authorities have issued any official statistics on the number of civilians in al-Raqqah.

Last June, the UN announced the killing of dozens of civilians and besieging of more than 100,000 others in the city of al-Raqqah, pointing at violations committed by the SDF in their controlled areas in al-Raqqah. Local activists documented the killing of hundreds of civilians last May, most of them killed by raids by the International Coalition, who admitted to use white phosphorus bombs.
