1,236 bodies found in three mass graves in Raqqa

 1,236 bodies found in three mass graves in Raqqa
World  - The bodies of over 1,200 civilians, the majority of whom are women and children, were found buried in three mass graves in Syria’s Raqqa, according to local sources.

A video published on the official Twitter account of the Raqqa Civil Council's Reconstruction Committee showed bodies being extracted from mass graves.

"Nearly 1,236 bodies have so far been exhumed from three mass graves that were uncovered in Raqqa, not including those buried under the rubble of homes and undisclosed locations," a caption accompanying the photo reads.

They're said to have been all killed during the U.S.-led coalition's ferocious aerial campaign against Daesh terrorists in the region, which turned the city of Raqqa to rubble.

Amnesty International, a human rights group, previously warned, attacks by the U.S.-led coalition against Daesh in Syria's Raqqa last year violated international law by endangering civilian lives.

Back in April, photos showing workers extracting bodies from mass graves were posted on social media platforms.
