The news agency TASS reports (source):

The US-led coalition’s actions in Syria’s Raqqa are seen in Damascus as genocide, SANA news agency saidon Sunday citing an official source at the Syrian foreign ministry.

“The entire world has witnessed the systematic destruction of Raqqa city by the so-called international coalition and the rotten bodies of innocent civilians in the streets of the city and the displacement of the rest of its inhabitants which amounts to crimes of genocide that require accountability,” the foreign ministry official was quoted as saying.

According to the source, at this very time the coalition opened “safe corridors” to evacuate Islamic State (a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia) terrorists “to use them elsewhere in order to complicate the crisis in Syria and prolong it to serve the agendas of the colonial West.”

The statement followed the French foreign ministry’s congratulatory message of October 17 on the anniversary of Raqqa’s liberation.

The Syrian foreign ministry source stressed that France’s actions within the international coalition are “a shame for France” and are a reminder of “its colonialist history which is full of crimes against the peoples.”

The situation in Raqqa, which is controlled by the US-led coalition, remains tense. According to the United Nations assessment mission, 80% of buildings in Raqqa are either ruined or damaged, with dead bodies staying under the debris. People are dying because the city has not been cleared of mines. The city is cut of electricity and water supplies. Schools and hospitals are closed.

    To USA and Israel they do not care how other people describe their actions. Can you do something against them ? Of course, no….So, what ?

      So, against the colonial western agression, 60% of Syria was liberated since 2015. 85,000 western mercenaries were eliminated only by the russians, etc, etc. etc.

        You people always come on here with your anti us sentiment and bla bla bla but you can’t defeat the us you’ll not and you’re only puppet for a putin regime

        • jorge

          I don’t have any anti US sentiments, and, if I was russian, I would never vote for Putin nor his party. But you are identifying yourself with someone, guess who.

            You do not know how internal nd closed those sites are. they dont represent millions in Syria as well as the rest of the world, where You not even are allowed to know, whats going on.

      actually, measures are being implemented to prevent the US and Israel to have the power to repeat those actions.Their defeat will be not only military, as it happened to their ruffians in Syria, it will be at the highest level, and hit the thing that gives them the power they have today – their money.

      it will take the time that is needed, but in the end we’ll get there.

      meanwhile, zionists and relative servants will rage around the internet with bullshit of the like that “nobody does anything against the US and blah blah blah”.

      they’ll shut the fuck up then – until then one can ignore them.

      • jorge

        Already they can’t be ignored, but you’re right, in the futur will be worst for the bad guys.

        suggestion for everybody: to read Jack London (not everything), beginning by the «Love of life».

      You can, actually without any risk, without hard work, very comfortable. You can know!
      There is a reason why the whole Western media is censured and filled with fake news and lies. The illusions will disappear like air fading out of a balloon the moment you know.

    80% of the city destroyed…and the frogs have the audacity to say 1 year on well done boys.

    This is the difference between russia and usa. Where are the demining teams??? Usa should be good at mine removal as they are trained as an occupying army….where are the mine removers??

    And some misguided fools say russia carpet bombed aleppo. Guess what aleppo is functionning again

    And some other morron says kurds are the best fighters against isis.

    Well liberating a town implies removing mines corpses ect.

    The us led “coalition” has done none of the things, because there fucking occupiers.

    Do not despair raqqa brothers, salvation is coming we havent forgotten about you.

    • jorge

      Very good concrete words.
