Al-Raqqa - SMART

The Asayish forces of the al-Raqqa Civil Council imposed a 24-hour curfew in the town of al-Mansourah, 28 kilometers west of al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria, after the town's people attacked an Asayish headquarters in the town.

Local sources reported that the people set the Asayish headquarters on fire after Asayish members killed a young man from the Albu Khamis tribe while trying to arrest and recruit him to fight for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The sources said that a security alert was raised in the town and members of the Asayish started to shoot people after the fire, injuring a civilian. The sources also said that the people burned three SDF vehicles parked near the Asayish headquarters.

Al-Mansoura is considered important due to its geographic location being the last SDF-controlled town in southern al-Raqqa, bordering areas controlled by the Syrian government forces and their allied militias.

The Kurdish People Protection Units and the SDF arrest people daily in the al-Raqqa governorate for charges of dealing with the Islamic State and the Syrian government or to recruit them in their military forces.
