Al-Raqqa - SMART

Unknown airstrikes killed three members of the Syrian government forces and injured more than six others in the city of Raqqa, Northeastern Syria.

On Wednesday, a military source reported to SMART that unknown three airstrikes killed three members of the Syrian government forces and injured more than six others. The airstrikes targeted Syrian government forces sites near the al-Thawra oil field south of the city of al-Tabaqa (55 kilometers west of al-Raqqa).

The source added that the dead and injured members were transferred to the city of Maskanah (100 kilometers east of Aleppo), heading to the Aleppo Military Hospital in Northern Syria.

The source confirmed that one of the officers of the Syrian government's 4th Division issued an order to evacuate the members and the military vehicles and to move away from the target location.

On Jan. 21, 2020, a landmine explosion killed a member of the Syrian government forces north of the city of al-Raqqa.

Groups of Syrian government forces were deployed in the Ayn Issa area north of al-Raqqa and Tal Tamr in al-Hasakah, according to an agreement concluded with the Kurdish Autonomous Administration to fight the Turkish Army after Turkey began its military operation against the Syrian Democratic Forces on Oct. 9, 2019.
