The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) suffered casualties on Wednesday after two bombs went off at their bases in Raqqa province.
A bomb went off at SDF’s base in al-Nour street in the Northwestern part of Raqqa city, injuring a number of SDF members.
In the meantime, fierce clashes were also reported between the SDF and the attackers after the bomb explosion.
Also, a bomb went off near Ibn Khaldoun school in Raqqa city, killing two SDF militias.
The SDF has arrested over fifty young men in the villages and towns in Northern Raqqa under a forced recruiting plan.
On Tuesday, the SDF stormed the villages of al-Ansar, Ajaj, al-Royan, al-Rashid, al-Andalos, al-Hayef, Khat al-Naniyeh, al-Rabi’eh, al-Salbiyeh and al-Sweidiyeh Saqireh, arresting over 270 villagers under different accusations, including cooperating with the Syrian Army.
In the meantime, the SDF has extended curfew in the region.
Other units of the SDF arrested a number of young people in the town of Ein Issa and its countryside in Northern Raqqa under a forced recruitment plan.
The SDF’s measures, especially arresting civilians, have fueled tension between them and people in Eastern Syria.
