On April 12, the Popular Resistance in Eastern Syria announced in an official statement that one of its cells had shelled a position of the US-led coalition in the 93rd Brigade base in the northern Raqqa countryside. The resistance released a video of the operation that shows at least one locally made rocket being launched by its fighters.

The US-led coalition and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) who control most of Raqqa governorate have not commented on the Syrian resistance claims yet.
The same US-led coalition position was reportedly shelled by the same resistance movement with mortars on April 3. Back then, the SDF denied that any of its positions was shelled.
Since the beginning of April, the Popular Resistance in Eastern Syria has started its active military operations against the US-led coalition in eastern Syria. Similar resistance movement were also established, like the Popular Resistance in al-Hasakah, while other already existence pro-government forces announced their plans to attack the US-led coalition, like the Iranian-backed Baqir Brigade.
Local observers believe that these movements are a result of the dangerous polices implemented of the US-led coalition that allowed the SDF – a Kurdish-dominated force that includes non-Syrian elements – to take over most of the Arab areas in eastern Syria.
