3 neighborhoods in Raqqa turned over to Domestic Security Forces
SDF turned over three neighborhoods in Raqqa to the Raqqa Civilian Council and the Domestic Security Forces.
After completely clearing the landmines, the SDF has turned over the Al-Mashlab, Al-Jazra and Al-Tayar neighborhoods to the Raqqa Civilian Council and the Domestic Security Forces.
SDF, YPG and YPJ commanders, Raqqa Civilian Council Co-chair Leyla Mustefa, Raqqa Reconstruction Committee Chairperson Ibrahim El Hesen and various Raqqa Civilian Council members participated in the neighborhood handover ceremony.
After a minute’s silence for the memory of the martyrs, Şevger Himo read the SDF’s statement, which is as follows:
“A great victory has been achieved where seeds for hope have been sown and unity among all faiths and nations has been created. As it is known, the SDF has liberated the Raqqa countryside with the Wrath of Euphrates operation. And most recently, the SDF started and prevailed in the great battle of liberating Raqqa.
As the SDF, we had promised our people that we would clear our country of terror step by step. Today, in front of all to see, we are handing over what we held in trust to the Raqqa Civilian Council and the Domestic Security Forces. As the SDF, we have done all we can for the security of the city.”
