On December 29, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) discovered two mass graves in the village of al-Wawi in the western Raqqa countryside after receiving information from the locals, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

The SANA said that the two mass graves included bodies of Syrian civilians and soldiers executed by ISIS when the area was under the terrorist group’s control.

“We received information from the locals that there were two mass graves near the village of Al-Wawi … We headed towards the two mass graves and found evidence that confirms the presence of bodies so we requested the help of the civil defense, which began to recover the bodies,” a SAA officer told SANA.

According to SANA, 115 bodies had been already recovered from one of the mass graves. The recovering the bodies from the other one is underway. Syrian pro-government activists reported that some of the bodies were identified as SAA soldiers.

The mass graves likely include the bodies of 350-700 SAA soldiers executed by ISIS on August 2014. The victims were captured by ISIS fighters during the battles for the Tabqah airbase and the 17 Division headquarters in Raqqa governorate.

    Ah Daesh Ah you motherfuckers you are done you can run but you can never hide from your atrocities.

    Go look in Raqqa. SDF and ISIS have surely killed dozen of thousands of civilians.

      Knowing The West Empire they probably brought tons of acid with them to lower their body count

    • cortisol

      Isis and USA made a deal for Isis soldiers withdrawal by the thousands from Raqqa. After that withdrawal, USA carpet bombed the city and massacred anyone possible. Someone needs to present the fate of Raqqa in UN general assembly and security council.

    Let this be known for the hole world.

    This is all the result of jewSA supporting isis and co..The resistance movement should double their efforts to make it impossible for these warmongering scumbags to survive anywhere in SYRIA.

    It is really pityful that some commenters here grab this found atrocity, committed by IS, to spew anisemite, anti SDF and anti USA trolling statements.

    It just shows to how low some ass-adophyle commenters can sink.

    Some depravities are bottomless.

    • Serious

      What a poor defense. XD.

      • dutchnational

        Against?

        • Serious

          Poor arguments.

          • dutchnational

            I agree. You offer very poor arguments. In fact, I hesitate to call your words arguments. It is more a kind of sectarian ranting.

      Zionism and the American hegemony in the Middle East

      • dutchnational

        I totally cannot link this to iS murdering many poor soldiers and civilians in Tabqah 2014. Please explain.

      Meaningless writing.

      Just last week the US mainstream and other western media were reporting on the disastrous consequences of US state support for ‘rebels’ in Syria – many of the US taxpayer funded weapons freely given to ‘rebels’ fell into the hands of ISIS. This reporting was based on serious research in a newly released Conflict Armament Research (CAR) report documenting and tracing weapons in Syrian conflict. Consequently, US supplied weapons were thus directly used against the Syrian population and Syrian state institution personnel – many murdered by ISIS – particularly captured state soldiers. Join the dots – political actions have serious real world consequences – and giving free weapons to militant opposition factions inside foreign countries is certainly no exception.

      How’s the weather in Tel Aviv? I see that your glorious leader (non-semitic ashkenazi) has decided to bomb the semites in the Palestinian areas again with US weapons.

    • Stephen Lambert

      Dutchnational. we all know the source of ISIS funding and resources at this stage and if it hurts you that it is SA, US, UK then that is your problem. Facts speak for themselves. If Israel supports, aids and facilitates ISIS and The SDF with the intention of weakening Syria then that too is just a fact.. it is not anti anything, least of all anti Semitic as most of the victims are in fact Semites, real semites.

  • Serious

    Who has talked about jews in this article ?? Noboby. But, it’s a fact that jews are jew-centered and see them everywhere and think that they have some importance. XD. That’s why dutchnational is surely a jew or a kurdish jew or a kurdish goy.

    All done in the name of Allah? I don’t think so.
    Those who do this kind of atrocity are devoid of any religion or spiritual guidance.
    Those who did this crime are nothing more than blood-thirsty throwbacks from incestual gene pools which have yet to evolve to modern standards. Idiots breeding with other idiots spells disaster for them and everyone around them.

    This atrocity goes against the Geneva Convention and is a crime against humanity. All those responsible should answer for this crime at the Hague. No one should be barred or excused including those high up the greasy pole, foreign or otherwise, who signed off on this mass murder or those who supplied the weapons with which to do it.

    What’s the bet that Christians and other munorities featured heavily in the body count. ISIS genocides always seem to have a talmudic flavour

      ISIS = Israel’s way to Islam
