U.S.-Led Bombing Reportedly Kills Dozens of Civilians in Raqqa

Damascus, August 22 (RHC)-- In Syria, the local journalistic group "Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently" reports dozens of civilians have been killed by U.S.-led bombing and U.S. artillery fire over the last few days amid the ongoing battle to seize control of the city of Raqqa from ISIS. 

The group says as many as 32 civilians were killed amid bombing in one neighborhood alone.  Among the victims were eight members of a family who had fled to Raqqa amid earlier fighting in Palmyra. 

A local Syrian journalist with the outlet Sound and Picture reports: "The city is devoid of doctors and the market is devoid of food.  What food there was in our refrigerators has rotted because there is no electricity."
