Several Kurdish militants were killed in the popular forces’ attacks on a convoy of the US and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Raqqa.
The Arabic-language website of Sputnik reported on Wednesday that the popular forces in Raqqa detonated a bomb on the way of a joint convoy of the US and SDF forces in al-Haramiyeh district in Raqqa city.
It added that the blast occurred as the US forces and the intelligence units of the SDF have planted over 600 cameras in the streets and districts of Raqqa.
Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Baladi website reported that during the attack, 3 Kurdish forces were killed and 8 others were wounded, adding that the SDF has put its forces on alert.
Popular protests against the deployment of occupying American forces and the US-backed SDF in Raqqa have increased recently.
In a relevant development earlier this week, unknown assailants shot dead a senior commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces in the city of Raqqa as tensions have intensified between civilians and SDF fighters there.
The Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency reported that Head of the SDF Security-Intelligence Office Fwaz al-Zaher was killed by unknown gunmen in Southwestern Raqqa City.
The source pointed to the prevalence of excessive intimidation by the Kurdish forces after death of their commander, and said that a large number of SDF fighters are in a state of full alert in this region.
Meantime, the measures by SDF which harm the people, including forced conscription, torture of the jailed civilians, releasing tens of ISIL terrorists in lieu of receiving hefty amount of cash and receiving heavy taxes from people have created a new wave of anger among the terrorists in Raqqa.
Meantime, the recent reports indicate the residents of different regions of Raqqa Province are hoisting an increasing number of the Syrian flags and printing graffiti in support of the Syrian army.
