Two SDF members killed in suspected ISIS attack near Raqqa
ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Two members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were killed in a suspected ISIS attack near Raqqa, a war monitor reported on Thursday.
Two SDF members were killed and three others were injured in an attack by ISIS cells with an improvised explosive device (IED), targeting a military vehicle of SDF on the road between Ain Issa and Tel Al-Samn in Raqqa, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.
Despite the SDF's liberation of Raqqa from ISIS in 2017 with the support of the US-led coalition, ISIS cells continue to operate in the region.
According to data from SOHR, a total of 80 people have been killed in northeast Syria since 2023.
Also on Thursday, the SDF and the US-led coalition carried out a joint operation against an ISIS cell in the Raqqa region.
