TEHRAN (FNA)- The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) put its militias on alert after unknown men embarked on distributing Syrian government flags across Raqqa city in Northeastern Syria, local sources reported on Wednesday.

The sources in the village of Ya'arab in Western Raqqa reported that SDF stormed the village to take down and tear apart a large number of Syrian government flags and images of President Bashar al-Assad at power towers.

The SDF leadership in the region put fighters on alert and ordered to clean the streets from flags and the president's images.

In the meantime, the wives of a number of gunmen of Liwa al-Thowar Raqqa who have been captured by the SDF demonstrated in al-Romeileh neighborhood in Raqqa city, and called on the SDF to release the detainees.

In a relevant development on Tuesday, the SDF stormed bases and positions of Liwa al-Thowar al-Raqqa in the Raqqa city and its outskirts and captured a sum of 200 gunmen.

In the meantime, the SDF arrested tens of villagers in the villages of al-Adnaniyeh, al-Rafeqa and al-Ansar, accusing them of supporting the Damascus government.

Local sources said that unprecedented tensions have swept the region due to the SDF measures.
