A local resistance group, known as the Popular Resistance of Raqqa (PRR), has carried out an attack on an alleged meeting between representatives of the US-led coalition and commanders of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the PRR claimed in a statement.
According to the existing info, the attack allegedly took place in the Crown International hotel in the city of Raqqah, which is controlled by the SDF.
There are no reports on casualties in the attack. Nor the US-led coalition nor the SDF has commented on the PRR’s claims.
First reports about anti-coalition armed groups operation in northern and eastern Syria started appearing in April 2018. Since then, these groups have carried out a few attacks targeting separate SDF members.
Anti-coalition sources have also claimed that at least two convoys of the US-led coalition and its proxies have been targeted by IEDs. However, no confirmation of these claims have appeared.
The recent attack in the city of Raqqa confirms that these groups continue operating in the SDF-held area despite efforts by the US-led coalition.
