“Qasad militia” kidnaps dozens of civilians from the Mansoura area in the countryside of Raqqa

Raqqa,(ST)- "Qasad militia" supported by the US occupation launched a new campaign of raids and kidnapped dozens of civilians in the countryside of Raqqa.

Local sources reported to SANA that “armed groups from the (Qasad) militia blockaded the town of Mansoura and a number of villages affiliated with it in the western countryside of Raqqa, raided houses and kidnapped dozens of young men to take them to their own camps and put them in its ranks to serve their agendas associated with the American occupation forces in the region."

The militia kidnapped two young men from the village’s eastern countryside during a raid campaign carried out yesterday in the village of Al-Fatsa in the eastern countryside of Raqqa and took them to an unknown destination, in an attempt to control the state of popular anger demanding its expulsion and the US occupation forces from the area.
