Urfa, Turkey – The pro-regime warplanes bombed on Monday the entrance of Euphrates basin complex near al-Iddikhar roundabout in the city of Raqqa, east of Syria. The attack claimed lives of several civilians and the injury of dozens others.

An eyewitness, who  inspected the incident’s location, stated to ARA News that the Assad warplane targeted the area with two missiles, one of which landed in the western part of Raqqa, leading to the death of 7 civilians.

“The remains of the victims’s bodies spread over the location after the bombardment, and nobody could identify them,” the source said. “Those parts transferred to the National Hospital of Raqqa.”

According to activists, three of the wounded were identified as Ammar al-Issa, Abdul Latif Zureiq and Mohamed Abdul Rahman.

The city of Raqqa is under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and it was targeted several times by the regime air force. Most of the attacks targeted residential districts, while ISIL strongholds in the city remained neutralized.
