There was no discussion in any of the UN agencies of the mass killing.

Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Britain-based Observatory, reported that 10 war planes struck at least 10 times in Raqqa, a stronghold of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“The majority of the strikes were in the eastern part of the city, ” Abdulrahman said. “At least 36 of those killed are civilians. As for the rest, we are not sure yet if they were fighters.”

According to the Associated Press, ISIS local officials said the strikes killed at least 70.

Another Raqqa-based media coordination outfit called “Raqqa is Being Silently Slaughtered” said it documented over 80 deaths.

ISIS forces ran out the last Syrian government forces from Raqqa province in late August, executing large groups of Syrian soldiers.

The Syrian air force has increased its strikes across Syria since a U.S.-led coalition started attacking Islamic State positions inside Syria in September, Al Arabia News reported.
