UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien has called on the conflicting sides in Syria to allow free access for humanitarian aid deliveries, and said that about 100,000 Syrians had left Raqqa since April due to poor humanitarian conditions and the ongoing operation to liberate the city from the ISIS terrorist group.

Syrian army as well as numerous armed groups, such as the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have been fighting against ISIS that had occupied vast territories of the Middle Eastern country, including Raqqa. The SDF are currently conducting the Wrath of Euphrates operation aimed at liberation of the de-facto capital of the self-proclaimed caliphate.
