In photos: Locals help Christians of Syria celebrate Christmas in liberated Raqqa

By AFP 29/12/2017
ISIS once claimed Raqqa as the capital of its so-called caliphate.

In October, the SDF, a local coalition including Kurdish YPG, Arab, Assyrian/Syriac/Armenian Christian and other militias liberated the devastated city.

Most Raqqawis remain displaced, but the Syriac Military Council and other SDF elements prepared a Christmas celebration at the heavily damaged Armenian Catholic Church of the Martyrs in eastern Raqqa.

Others dressed as Santa Claus and handed toys to children along the cratered streets.
