Al-Raqqa - SMART

A commander in the al-Asayesh forces, affiliated with the Kurdish Autonomous Administration, denied imposing a curfew in al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria. He assured that the security operations are mainly launched in the Western outskirts. Local activists reported lifting the curfew in Western al-Raqqa while increasing the checkpoints.

The commander denied the curfew after the residents of al-Raqqa expected the al-Asayesh forces to impose a curfew in al-Raqqa, on Saturday, during the security campaign launched by the forces in the area.

The commander, who preferred not to be named, said that the news of imposing a curfew is wrong. He added that they are working on cleansing terror cells in Western al-Raqqa.

Local sources from Western al-Raqqa reported that the al-Asayesh forces lifted the curfew they imposed yesterday and increased the checkpoints in the area.

The sources reported that the al-Asayesh established seven checkpoints within 30 kilometers on the al-Salhabiya-al-Raqqa road, in addition to reinforcing other checkpoints in the area.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), along with the al-Asayesh, imposed a night curfew in areas in Western al-Raqqa.

Tension arose between the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Thuwar al-Raqqa brigade in al-Raqqa. The tension appeared after the YPG arrested fighters of the latter, in addition to clashes that injured fighters from both parties. The tension was followed by protests demanding to repeal the YPG from the city.
