Syrian Democratic Forces Capture Rubidah Town in Deir Ezzor, Forbid Civilians From Returning To their Homes In Raqqa City

On October 26, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that its fighters captured Rubidah town 44km northeast of Deir Ezor city. The SDF said that its fighters killed 6 fighters of ISIS during the attack on the town.

Meanwhile, Syrian opposition sources said that the SDF banned civilians from entering their houses in Gharibah al-Sharqi, al-Jasimi, al-Bisiten and Muijil villages in the northern Deir Ezzor countryside. The sources added that SDF fighters looted many houses inside these villages.

Local sources from Raqqa city reported that the SDF banned the civilians from returning to their houses in al-Mushalib district in the eastern part of the city.

According to the sources, civilians protested against the SDF ban. However, SDF fighters allegedly opened fire on them.

The pro-Syrian opposition news blog “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently” said that at least 12 civilians were injured during the SDF attack. Some of them are in dangerous condition.

These accidents are considered a logical outcome for the tensions between Arabs and Kurds created by the SDF in its areas. The upcoming months will likely witness more similar incidents as the SDF appears to be unwilling to change some of its polices.
