At Least 50 Members Of US-backed Forces Killed And Injured In ISIS VBIED Attack In Raqqa City: ISIS Claims


On November 4, a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) exploded near a headquarter of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the al-Noor street in the city of Raqqa.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack and said that it was carried out by its cells in Raqqa. According to the terrorist group news agency, Amaq, more than 50 fighters of the SDF were killed and injured as a result of the VBIED explosion.

“God willing, we will ruin the lives of unbelievers, and those who support and help them, we will not have mercy or pity on them,” ISIS said in a short statement.

The Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA) reported that only a single civilian was killed in the attack. However, it acknowledged that “some” personnel of the SDF were injured.

This incident is another example of how the weak security measures of the SDF. The situation in the city allows ISIS cells to plan and carry out bigger attacks. Earlier this week, the terrorist group managed to assassinated a prominent tribal leader, which sparked a crisis between the US-backed group and the Arab tribes.

USA created ISIS

1 truck bomb attack is just as effective as a hard fought battle when it comes to casualty losses where Isis is concerned. A hard fought battle means 50 dead or wounded for both sides, but an Isis VBIED attack means 1 dead lunatic and 50 dead or wounded Kurds.
I’ve seen heaps of videos that show just how effective the Kurds got at repelling Isis VBIED attacks, but they always saw those trucks coming because they were protecting specific areas, but protecting and patrolling are 2 different things, now they won’t see a lot of these VBIED’s coming.
I think we’re going to see a lot more of these attacks.

The Kurds have to stop being the US/UK/ISR/SA/US-led NATO’s pattsies! They are a Nation without land. Assad e.g., is willing to give them an autonomous status, so is Iraq.

mmm ?. The Kurds in Iraq already have an autonomous state – and in Syria, for the sake of peace they will also have one…. I am sure that has been discussed and confirmed by Assad.

Promitheas Apollonious

You maybe sure but I hear all Assad’s speeches and what he said is in contradiction with what you saying. Now that the Russians are selling Syria very short, to me is a fact and not a surprise.

The question is if their bigger plan(russians) don’t also backfire in their faces because from the looks of events by the time the russians decide on anything,……….. speaking big and doing big is not one and the same thing and that goes for all involved in this mess.

The price is too high, so all is left, is compromising at the expense of the people allegedly went to help. This is what I seen happening and yes russians help Assad to keep part of syria, but now they giving away what is not theirs to give. So what is their difference, from the rest?

I agree with totally disagreeing with you.

Promitheas Apollonious

that works too. maybe yo should take a vacation my way and disucss it over drinks and few other things.

You can call me Al

Thanks for the invite. Will do.

Promitheas Apollonious

If Assad has confirmed is giving the oil fields of Syria to the kurds I have missed that. I also think is the russians you listen to what they say and not the syrians and mistake it the syrians said that. In any case I missed what you saying Assad said and I know different. That is the reason I said the russians are not much different than the americans and allies when it comes down to sell out their allies in the name of global policies.

Dont be stupid. Their autonomous area is where they were before – the North.

Dear Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF)

Have you not woken yet, to the fact that the US are using you as cannon fodder, against their real buddies and kin in ISIS ?. Last chance to change sides again.
