In Raqqa civilians protest against forced recruiting by PYD

30.05.2018, Raqqa.

Residents of the Syrian city of Raqqa went out for a large protest rally on May 30, a source of the Rossa Primavera Information Agency reports.

The protesters demand that the pro-American Kurdish Democratic Union (PYD) leave their city. The protest was reportedly triggered by forced recruiting of local residents by PYD militants.

Also, it is said that the forced recruiting results in armed clashes between the “democratic” Kurds and their former allies within the Syrian Democratic Forces alliance with whom they occupied Raqqa.

The city of Raqqa was liberated from radical Islamists in October 2017. The city was in a humanitarian crisis. Nothing has changed since then. The engineering networks in Raqqa are not functioning, basic living amenities are unavailable, and those refugees who have returned continue to be killed by shells and mortar bombs that were left unexploded after the hostilities.
