Raqqa, the former capital of the Islamic State in Syria, is now controlled by Kurdish and Bashar al Assad’s troops.
The horrors of Daesh are a distant memory, but the spectre of terrorism continues to be present. In these images, shot last August, the Kurds warned the world about the possible return of the Islamic State. This threat is now more relevant than ever.
Following the Turkish offensive “Spring of Peace”, indeed, many jihadists have managed to escape from prisons controlled by the SDF and the nightmare of the terrorist attacks has returned.
The Kurdish alarm in August went unheard. And today we are paying the price.
