On Sunday, residents of the occupied Raqqa clashed with the Daesh militants and flown Syria's flags in five neighborhoods of the city. The residents took to the streets in two neighborhoods, killing a number of Daesh militants.
"About 200 Syrian militants of Daesh [another name for Islamic State] took the side of residents of Raqqa, which forced the terrorists to organize roadblocks at the entrance to the city," the source said.
The city of Raqqa is the de facto Daesh capital and their major stronghold in Syria. It has been under control of the jihadists since August 2014. Currently the Syrian army, as well as the Kurdish militias are carrying out offensives to liberate the city from Daesh, which is outlawed in many countries, including the United States and Russia.
