Raqqa, Syria

November 25, 2014

At least 95 people were killed and 120 injured on Tuesday in a series of airstrikes believed to be carried out by Syrian government forces against civilian neighborhoods in Raqqa, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The airstrikes caused large scale devastation in residential buildings and public squares. A mosque and the local museum were also damaged in the bombing.

Raqqa is the self-proclaimed capital of the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS.

An international coalition led by the United States has launched a bombing campaign against ISIS positions since September.

Eyewitnesses, however, believe that these airstrikes were carried out by the Syrian government’s air force.

The Syrian regime has repeatedly targeted the city with airstrikes since it lost control over it in March 2013
