Al-Raqqa - SMART

On Tuesday, the Initial Response Team (IRT) removed 12 new bodies from a mass grave in the al-Banorama area in Southern al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria.

A forensic source in the IRT reported that they removed 12 bodies, one of which belongs to a woman, in the al-Banorama mass grave in al-Raqqa. The source added that they identified five of the bodies and handed over them to their families.

The source added that they also removed two unidentified bodies from beneath the rubble of a house in the neighborhood of al-Tawasou'iya in al-Raqqa.

Sixty-one bodies have been removed from the al-Banorama mass grave so far, and most of them remain unidentified. The IRT removed the bodies over the course of a week until last Saturday.

As the IRT began removing the bodies, they suspected that the al-Banorama mass grave mostly held 1,500 bodies of Islamic State (IS) members, based on their clothing and ID cards.

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

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