Raqqa

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and other US-backed militant groups intensified their clashes in Raqqa province on Wednesday as similar tensions with civilians in Raqqa city have increased.

“A number of SDF forces were wounded in the course of clashes between the SDF and another US-backed militant group named Thwar al-Raqqa Brigade,” local sources said.

This came as the SDF forces also arrested a number of civilians in the villages of al-Sharia and al-Fadavi near the town of Ain Issa in Northern Raqqa on charges of cooperation with Thwar al-Raqqa Brigade.

Meantime, the SDF forces arrested at least 35 young people in the market of Raqqa city and sent them to an unknown destination for forced conscription.

This is while the blasts and attacks by unknown assailants on the SDF positions have considerably increased in recent days.

Sweida

The Free Syrian Army is preparing for military operations in Western Sweida as reports said FSA has failed to receive help from its allies in the region.

The Free Syrian Army militants who are present in Sama al-Hanidat village in Western Sweida province have asked other terrorist groups stationed in Dara’a to send military equipment and weapons for them, the Smart News website affiliated to the terrorist groups said.

Commander of 108 Brigade of FSA’s al-Amri brigades Meftah al-Sabreh said that his request for help from other FSA militants in Dara’a has remained unanswered for more than one week.

Al-Sabreh voiced concern that the militants and residents of the regions in Western Sweida, including residents of the village of Sama, might have reached an agreement with the Syrian army to hand over those regions to the Syrian army.

He pointed to the dispatch of troops and military equipment by the Syrian army to the region, and accused other terrorist groups for not supporting him.

Al-Sabreh said that the army’s military operations will not be limited to Sama village, but it will cover the entire Dara’a province.
