The United Nations is deeply concerned about the safety and protection of the thousands of civilians inside Raqqa city, many of them women and children, a UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said on Wednesday.

The AFP quoted Dujarric as saying in a press conference that “an estimated 10,000 to 25,000 people remain trapped in the city, although exact figures remain difficult to verify due to the situation on the ground.”

In an outrageous intervention of the international humanitarian law, the US-led “international coalition” has used phosphorous bombs against civilians in Raqqa city for many times, and it has destroyed Raqqa National Hospital and killed scores of civilians over the past few days mostly women and children and elderly.
