Russia has accused the U.S.-led coalition in Syria of bombing the city of Raqqa “off the face of the Earth,” comparing it to the allied bombing of the German city of Dresden in World War II. The comments came after U.S.-backed militias claimed victory in a fight against ISIS that left the city completely in ruins. The local journalistic group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently reports the U.S.-backed assault killed 1,873 civilians and displaced some 450,000 people.
