Al-Raqqa - SMART

On Tuesday, two explosive devices detonated in the city of al-Raqqa, Northeastern Syria, injuring six civilians.

Local sources reported to SMART that an explosive device planted by unknown people exploded in the al-Mahata neighborhood north of the city center, injuring five civilians, three of whom were transported to the hospitals of al-Furat and Modern Medicine in critical conditions.

The sources added that an explosive device left behind by the Islamic State (IS) exploded and injured the driver of a bulldozer while he was clearing the rubble of a destroyed house in the al-Haramiah neighborhood.

On Jan. 8, 2019, a bomb left behind by the IS exploded in the village of Ajaj west of al-Raqqa, killing a child, while a landmine explosion injured a civilian in the village of al-Asadiah north of al-Raqqa.

Explosive devices and landmines left behind by the IS are common in the al-Raqqa governorate, in addition to car bombs. The explosions have killed and injured many people, most of whom were civilians. The IS claimed responsibility for some of the explosions while the rest were carried by unknown parties.
