Amnesty International says US-led coalition destroyed Syria's Raqqa

Amnesty International says US-led coalition destroyed Raqqa
An international human rights group on Tuesday accused the US and its allies of showing little regard for civilians' lives while attacking the Syrian city that was once the de-facto capital of IS group, an allegation denied by the US military.

Amnesty International said the US-led coalition’s 2017 assault on Raqqa killed hundreds of civilians and reduced sections of the city to rubble.

Researchers for Amnesty interviewed more than 100 residents and visited 42 coalition targets in the city in a two-week period in February.

They published their findings in a report titled “War of Annihilation”, in a reference to the language used by US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in the lead-up to the campaign.
