US ground force backed with aircraft stormed a house in the city of Raqqa countryside on Tuesday (Oct 1), Orient News learnt from local sources.

The force detained an engineer, Jamal al-Mabrook, and his son from their house in the village of Sweidiyya in the north of Tabqa city, leading them to an unknown location.

The US-led coalition has made no comment on on the operation.

The US-led coalition conducted many operations to capture former ISIS leaders in Deir ez-Zor, Hasaka and Raqqa.

US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced last March that they had liberated the village of Baghouz, the last area held by ISIS in Syria, marking the end of a brutal self-styled caliphate, which the extremist group carved out in large parts of Iraq and Syria in 2014.
