Another town in West Asia facing annihilation

The western Syrian town of Raqqa is the latest urban settlement to face massive bombardment after Aleppo and Mosul in Iraq. Amid ongoing calls for civilian evacuations from international human rights agencies and the United Nations, and media reports on the war, the working class communities of Raqqa are now trapped amid bombardments from all sides. The situation inside Raqqa is becoming increasingly desperate with the city slowly being pulverised. As always, working class women, children and men are the main victims of intra imperialist wars.
