At least 481 Syrian civilians were killed in Syria’s northern province of Raqqah during the month of July, an NGO reporting from the area has indicated

Data from Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS), which is a citizen journalist movement, revealed that U.S. coalition forces had carried out 633 air raids in the city of Raqqah in July, which led to the deaths of 189 Syrian civilians.

Another 126 civilians were killed by 440 Russian airstrikes, while 121 others were killed by artillery shelling carried out by the PYD terrorist group, the Syrian branch of the PKK -- considered a terrorist outfit by the U.S, the EU and Turkey.

Last month, the Syrian Network for Human Rights documented that some 1,400 civilians, including 308 children and 203 women, had been killed in Raqqah over the previous eight months.

The U.S.-led international coalition launched on June 6 an operation to expel the terrorist group Daesh from the city of Raqqah.
