Russia says the US has wiped the Syrian city of Raqqah “off the face of the earth” with carpet bombing in the same way the United States and Britain bombed Germany’s Dresden in 1945.
In a statement released on Sunday, the Russian Defense Ministry accused the US-coalition of having rushed to provide aid to Raqqah to cover up its own crimes. The deadly assaults were also supported by Dutch & British fighter jets. “Raqqah has inherited the fate of Dresden in 1945, wiped off the face of the earth by Anglo-American bombardments.
Recently, ISIS terrorists left Raqqah, their former “headquarters capital” in Syria, as part of a deal with the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the US-led coalition. Like this the US-backed Kurdish-dominated SDF announced full control over the city.

However the desire to cover up evidence of the barbaric bombardments carried by the US air force and the coalition as fast as possible in order to bury the thousands of civilians ‘liberated’ from ISIS in the ruins is important to keep up the genocide in disguise.
The USA and its allies have been bombarding what they call ISIS positions inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate. The air strikes, however, have on many occasions resulted in many civilian casualties and failed to fulfill their declared aim of countering terrorism.
The US coalition is aiming to control the largest Syrian gas & oil fields in order to cripple the Syrian economy. At the same time the most of the Syrian water resources are being confiscated to frustrate the Syrian agricultural sector, so more civilians will die of thirst and hunger for Israel to profit from.
