BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – A mysterious pro-government group calling themselves the “Popular Resistance of Al-Raqqa” continued their flag burning campaign across the Al-Raqqa Governorate this week.

Based on the footage released by the group, they set the French and U.S. flags on fire inside the Rumaila neighborhood of Raqqa city, while also demanding the entry of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

This group has been posting several videos from Al-Raqqa since 2018 and while they claim to be pro-government, their identities remain relatively unknown.

The Syrian government has also not commented on the existence of this group.

Buhaha, these idiots must have red my comment here, noting that Reebok belonged to Adidas which became a French company in 1990, that both blue-jeans and trousers were French inventions : now they near all wear dresses, muhahaha, they look like a gay-pride… What is also laughable, if they’re really pro-Syrian government, is to wear the red/white keffiyeh : this is the Jordan keffiyeh… When you know the huge numbers of weapons that transited through Jordan, courtesy of the Bani-Thani and the Bani-Saud with a little help from the CIA… Maybe could they wear the SAA camo fatigues? Ooooops, these… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, burning flags isn’t very sensible. How did they get them anyway? It is very Arab to wear such garb and Jordanian keffiyeh have decorative tassels.

p.s. Reebok is an US subsidiary of Adidas, Herzogenaurach, Germany. Jeans were invented by immigrants to the US: Löb Strauß from Buttenheim, a German, and Jākobs Jufess from Riga, Russian empire, both Jews by religion. And the marauding reiters brought trousers to France before the French could invent. Tongue.

Nothing mysterious. They are government paid and under control of secret police . The customary way of undermining opponents within the region. By infiltration and violence. Not by open opposition as in any democracy. But there is no real democracy in syria, right?

Most of the Raqqans are not even there. I dont understand why they cant come back. Are Turks blocking, are SDFs ? Are they afraid. Those refugees are the peacefull ones. Some might say they dont kill, and therefoire they are of no use. But they should come back. I see those Assads as all Assads have in Raqqa today as well as FSA are nothing and never should take houses and being armed as an own tribe. Raqqa counsil as well as the whole SDF area is only unsafe because of Turks and Assads, so why cant both back… Read more »
