DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:00 A.M.) – The Syrian northern city of Raqqa continues to receive devastating airstrikes by the US-led coalition as the Kurdish forces battle against the Islamic State in several neighborhoods inside the city.

Satellite images have been recently released showing the great destruction that has hit the city after hundreds of aerial bombardment by the coalition jets against the terror group.

The airstrikes have not only caused unbelievably substantial damage to the city’s urban districts and infrastructure, but also killed hundreds – if not thousands – of the trapped civilians.

Earlier this week, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights documented the death of 42 civilians by coalition airstrikes including 19 children, raising the number of civilian casualties to 170 within one week.

Yesterday, the United Nation called for a humanitarian truce to allow as many civilians to exit the battleground of Raqqa.

Yes, the vaunted US military’s ability to unleash pip-point accurate attacks…which look more like carpet bombing. This is why no one should ever ask for US ‘help’. No matter if they are with you or agin you, the result is the same: total destruction of your infrastructure and slaughter of your citizens. Yet nothing is said. With help like this, who needs enemies? Kurds, take note…this could be you later.
