Al-Raqqa-SMART

On Wednesday, Yasser al-Khamisi, an official of the Initial Response Team (IRT) estimated that there are 2,600 bodies in three mass graves that the IRT found recently in the al-Raqqa governorate, Northeastern Syria.

Al-Khamisi added that the IRT started to remove the bodies from the cemetery of the al-Panorama park in Central al-Raqqa. Al-Khamisi suspected that the cemetery includes 1,500 bodies most of them belong to Islamic State (IS) members as the clothes and identity documents showed.

Al-Khamisi added that the IRT removed 40 bodies from the al-Panorama cemetery in the last two days.

Al-Khamisi added that the IRT found the second largest mass grave in al-Raqqa. The mass grave includes 1,000 bodies, and it is located near the village of Fakhikha, Southern al-Raqqa, on the Euphrates river bank.

Al-Khamisi noted that the residents of the village of al-Salhabiya al-Gharbia, Western al-Raqqa informed the IRT about a mass grave of 150 bodies inside a trench.   

IRT workers said that they removed three bodies one of them belongs to a woman, from beneath the rubble of buildings in the al-Badou neighborhood, al-Raqqa.

The IRT removes bodies in al-Raqqa on a daily basis.  In late August 2018, Ibrahim al-Hasan, head of the Reconstruction Committee in the al-Raqqa Civil Council said that they had removed 2,147 bodies since January 8, 2018.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), supported by the United States-led International Coalition, launched a major military operation against the Islamic State  (IS) more than a year ago. 

Activists blame the International Coalition and SDF for killing hundreds of civilians in intense random bombings on al-Raqqa during the battle to regain control of the city and expel the IS members.
