DAMASCUS (Sputnik) - The militia of the Syrian city of Raqqa fired mortars on the US-led coalition base in the town of Ayn Issa, the press service of the movement said on Monday.

"Following the intelligence activities, the militia of Raqqa waged a special operation targeting the US Staff located at the former base of the 93rd Brigade in the district of Ayn Issa, 43 miles north of Raqqa. Several mortar shells were fired on individual targets without any casualties on our side," the statement said.

The militia noted that they do not tolerate "the occupational forces" of the United States, Turkey, and their allies in northern Syria.

The statement read: "Do not relax night and day, wherever you are."
