Raqqa, Syria – Residents of the city of Raqqa suffered the most under recent air raids by the Syrian regime’s air force.

Dr. Yahia, one of the doctors in the National Hospital of Raqqa talked to ARA News about a recent raid on the city’s neighbourhoods, saying that a state of panic overshadows the city with every air raid.

“The moments followed the raid were horrible and it was one of the hardest experiences I have ever been through. The hospital was full of bodies of children, women, young and old men. We were unable to count casualties numbers,” Yahia said.

According to Yahia, “the most painful moment came when I was doing resuscitation to one of the casualties. An eight-year-old child came and pulled me to help his mother. He was running between me and his mum, asking her not to sleep.”

“The mother’s status was critical. She was hanged between life and death. However, the child kept holding his mum’s hand even inside the operations’We room. Thanking God, we were able to save her.”

Dr. Yahia added: “After the operation, one of the family’s relatives came to the hospital to report the death of the child’s 10-year-old brother. We all cried with that brave young-old child.”

The regime’s air forces have made seven missile-raids on the city of Raqqa on earlier on Wednesday. Tens of civilians were either injured or killed.
