Syrian forces find ‘two Isil mass graves outside Raqqa’

Two mass graves containing dozens of bodies of civilians and Syrian troops killed by Islamic State jihadists have been found in the west of Raqa province, state news agency SANA reported Friday.

The bodies were discovered based on information provided by residents near Wawi in the west of the province, which borders Turkey. It said they had been executed.

Recovery operations were expected to last several days “due to the huge area of the two mass graves”, SANA quoted a source from the Syrian civil defence as saying.
