DAMASCUS (Xinhua) – About 1,500 bodies of civilians have been found in a newly-discovered mass grave in Syria’s northern province of Raqqa, the former de facto capital of the Islamic State, the pro-government al-Watan newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Citing medical sources, the newspaper said the bodies were those of civilians who had been killed by the strikes of the US-led coalition on Raqqa.

About about 4,000 bodies of civilians have been unearthed from mass graves in Raqqa, adding more bodies were being unearthed daily.

The US-led coalition had supported the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in their push to capture Raqqa, which was the de facto capital of the IS in 2017.
