Mysterious Explosions Rocked Raqqa’s Sky In Northern Syria (Photos)

Support SouthFront

Late on November 13, two loud explosions were heard over the northern city of Raqqa, which is controlled by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

The explosions shattered the windows of a number of houses and shops in Raqqa’s city center. However, no civilians were injured.

Opposition sources claimed that the explosions were caused by warplanes of the U.S.-led coalition, which launched missiles while flying over Raqqa city. The missiles allegedly hit Iranian forces’ positions in southern Raqqa.

These claims were not only denied by pro-government sources, but also by the U.S.-led coalition itself. A spokesman for the coalition told Al Monitor journalist Jared Szuba that no airstrikes were carried out in Raqqa on November 13.

After the explosions, shrapnel were found by the locals in different parts of Raqqa city. This further confirms that the explosions were not the result of a missile launch by U.S.-led coalition.

Some experts speculated that the explosions were caused by air-to-air missiles fired by Syrian or Russian warplanes at hostile drones heading to government-held areas.

Earlier this year, similar explosions were reported over Turkish-occupied areas in northern Aleppo and the northwestern region of Greater Idlib. This indicates that the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Arab Air Force may be indeed responsible for the mysterious explosions over Raqqa.

Could have been meteorites. Just watch the movie Greenland to learn, what is incoming.

I’ve learn from movies that everything that comes from space, visits America first.

paolinks

And that americans save the world in the end! The only rusky is a fat, old, perverted, bilionaire oligarch, who leaves his latest, 20yrs old, wife behind.

occupybacon

Hmmm, is that a movie I missed?

paolinks

oh yeah, the great Yuri Karpov https://youtu.be/N84nOZa-io8?t=75

Wow that’s a nice scene. Thanks. C’mon baby, lift your big ass for Sasha! But it doesn’t really villify Russians as I perceived from your comment.

paolinks

Not in this scene. But near the end of the movie, Yuri will board the ark, leaving everyone, except his sons, behind. Even his wife.

occupybacon

Judging by the actual Russian oligarchs origins, Yuri can’t be an ethnic Russian ;)

I have read on almasdar that russians launched a couple of Iskanders from Hmeimim.

Lone Ranger

It was either SAMs or air to air missiles.

Jens Holm

Thre is not a single indication on that.

Lone Ranger

What do you call the two plums?

Jens Holm

You have to learn to learn to comment from, whats known. There is too much timewasting crap of Your kind.

Lone Ranger

Better luck next time Jens…

paolinks

Then it is something even worse.

Jens Holm

We not now.

verner

but anyhow, too much explosives in idlib, raqqa and elsewhere in syria’s north. better move it to tel aviv and blow that place sky high!

Jens Holm

The ususal sheep eat it. They even eat barbed wire served for them.

What was the targets??? Comments mention USA, Russia, Turks and Sams. But did the explosions hit anything at all.

Peing in the ocean makes tzunamis here …

What ever it was it is now irrelevant. Trump’s acting defense secretary Miller has just told the military it’s time to draw down forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. “All wars must end,” Miller said. “It’s time to come home.”
So that means they will no longer be able to stay in Syria either.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Reports on syrialiveuamaps claim it was coalition aircraft and they used sound bombs, whatever sound bombs are, a new weapon perhaps, or maybe an anti personnel tool?
