Men remove rubble and work at Raqqa's water plant, after what locals said an air raid by Syrian government forces which targeted it and resulting in a water cutoff for all residents August 18, 2014. Syrian government forces struck Islamic State positions in and around the eastern Syrian city of Raqqa, residents said on Monday, part of a growing campaign against hardline militants who control a third of the country. Raqqa is a major stronghold of the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which took one of the Syrian army's last outposts in the city this week to extend its gains across both Iraq and Syria.
