Al-Raqqa - SMART

On Friday, a bomb exploded near the city of al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria, injuring three members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

A military source reported that an explosive device targeted a military vehicle of the Deir al-Zor military council as it was passing on the al-Matab road to the city of al-Raqqa, injuring three members. The wounded were transferred to the al-Basira military hospital in the countryside of Deir al-Zor.

The source added that members of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) erected a checkpoint on the targeted road to inspect cars and investigate civilians, to search for the group that planted the device.

Several explosions, carried out by unknown persons or Islamic State members frequently targeted members of the YPG and the SDF in the governorate of al-Raqqa. The explosions resulted in the killing and injuring of many civilians.
