Major Airstrikes In Raqqa, Syria; 31 Isis Fighters Killed

US-led coalition air strikes on Sunday have killed more than 32 Islamic State fighters and injured forty more in the Syrian city of Raqqa, which is the de facto Syrian capital of the terror group.

Raqqa is frequently targeted by the US-led coalition forces since September last year and Syrian warplanes too. Lately Russia and Britain have joined in the air campaign.

However, critics claim Russia is targeting the rebel groups opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

After the deadly multiple attacks in Paris that killed 129 innocent people France too has stepped up airstrikes in Syria targeting sites of Isis.

Germany approved Friday plans of joining military action against the Isis militants in Syria.

Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said northern and eastern suburbs of Raqqa shook with fifteen blasts today.

It is not yet disclosed which country carried out the fresh air campaign, but it is highly believed to be the work of US-led coalition forces.
