US Airstrikes Cut Water Supply In Raqqa

Can we say US crimes against humanity......???
With the help of the Kurdish besties of course.

SANA, SOHR and ISIS have all corroborated this attack. The US most certainly did undertake this despicable attack. The US did the same thing in Mosul- Dividing a city and making life miserable for the civilians.

 December 28/2016: Mosul's Last Bridge Destroyed By Coalition Airstrikes- From 5 to None

Until recently, Mosul had five bridges spanning the Tigris River, which runs through the centre of the northern city. One was disabled in the weeks before the offensive to retake the city began on October 17, while the other four have since been bombed in airstrikes.

"Before dawn on Friday, US-led coalition aircraft reportedly destroyed the main water pipeline supplying the Syrian city of Raqqa, the so-called "Islamic State's" (IS) de facto capital located in northern Syria.

Two bridges linking the city's southern flank to the countryside were also destroyed during ground-fighting between US-backed fighters and IS militants, observers reported Friday.

SANA, the Syrian state news agency, and an IS-affiliated website reported early Friday that Raqqa's main water pipeline was damaged in an airstrike, cutting off the city's water supply.

The IS-affiliated website also reported that the only two bridges crossing the Euphrates River at the southern tip of the city have been destroyed.

A local media collective - Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently - also reported the lost water supply, and criticized the destruction of the two bridges, saying they are used by civilians. They called such acts "absolutely unacceptable." They said the water supply is fully cut from the city.

"It seems that the US-led coalition is trying to besiege civilians of Raqqa by destroying the infrastructure," the group said on Twitter.


More than 200,000 people are believed to be still living in Raqqa"

    "The United States and Egypt are trying to force Turkey to make certain concessions, including establishing a Kurdish autonomous region in northern Syria and talks with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) inside Turkey," Pekin said. According to him, if such a Kurdish entity is established Ankara would be "encircled from the south" and will have to fight a "war on two fronts," against Daesh in Syria and against PKK inside the country.

  2. Murderica never cares about tribesmen from wild countries. Seems the Euphrates River was chosen as the border between Kurdistan and Syria.
