Russian Defense Ministry: The destruction of Raqqa city is the 1st result of US-led coalition

Moscow, SANA – The Russian Defense Ministry affirmed that the first result of the raids of the “international coalition” led by the US during the past three years is the destruction of Raqqa city along with killing civilians in it.

“In three years of its presence in Syria, the coalition only recently achieved its first ‘result’ in the fight against Daesh by destroying Raqqa along with the civilians.” the Ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

“That is why, if there is any positive role of the international coalition in defeating Daesh in Syria, it is only that it did not manage to destroy other Syrian cities with its carpet bombing, like it did with Raqqa,” the Ministry added, noting that the coalition allowed Daesh terrorists to leave the city of Raqqa and join other terrorists near Deir Ezzor as confirmed by the BBC.
