With more than 80% of Raqqa destroyed, Margaret Huang, executive director of Amnesty International USA, says the situation has an unambiguous cause: the U.S. coalition airstrikes. All the city’s schools have been destroyed, as have most of the hospitals, and important infrastructure like roads and buildings still need to be rebuilt. “There’s not equipment, there are no resources,” Huang says. “There’s really nothing in Raqqa right now to help rebuild.”
