13,000 refugees flee terrorist-controlled parts of Raqqa province

 

The committee chairperson of Raqqa civilian assembly said that about 13,000 refugees fled the territories of the northern Syrian province occupied by the ISIS terrorist group and came to the areas controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

"During the past two days, we have welcomed 13 thousand refugees from Meyselon and Celaa villages north of Raqqa and other villages near Raqqa," EbdulselamHemsorik told the Firat news agency on Saturday. 

The official added that the majority of refugees were coming from the regions near Raqqa, but even three weeks ago the influx had been coming mostly from other parts of the crisis-torn state. 

Syrian army as well as numerous armed groups, such as the SDF, have been fighting against ISIS, a terrorist organization that has occupied vast territories of the Middle Eastern country, including Raqqa.
