Amnesty International on the “Battle of Raqqa”

        Exactly one year ago, the international coalition led by the U.S. launched the “Battle of Raqqa” against the Islamic State in Syria. A recent report from Amnesty International found that there have been serious violations of international law during this battle. Today, the former capital of the jihadists is an abandoned field of ruins. A report was issued by Amnesty International on June 5. The results are nothing positive. The operation led by the U.S. has provoked the destruction of the city and its essential infrastructures, the exodus of the majority of the population, and massive civilian casualties. The number of civilian casualties goes up to several hundred deaths. In the absence of transparency, it remains impossible to establish a precise number of the victims of air strikes.
