لكِ مني على البعاد نصيب‏

لم ينله على الدنو حبيب‏

وعلى الطّرف من سواك حجاب‏

وعلى القلب من هواك رقيب‏

زيّنَ في ناظري هواكِ وقلبي‏

والهوى فيه رائع ومشوب‏

كيف يغني قرب الطبيب عليلاً‏ أنتِ أسقمته وأنتِ الطبيب

Construction workers remove rubble from a destroyed building in Raqqa, Syria. May 2018.
Seven months after the end of the offensive by the Syrian Democratic Forces and US-led coalition to retake the city from ISIS’s self-proclaimed capital. Hundreds of civilians were killed and many thousands injured. About half of the 400,000 strong population - prior to the June offensive - have moved back to a city devastated by coalition airstrikes, street battles, and unexploded ordinance left behind, in order to try rebuilding their lives despite a dearth of international assistance. •

Members of the Raqqa Civil Defense listen to a morning briefing, and praying before burying the remains of six unidentified civilians they retrieved, including two young children, from a destroyed building. Raqqa, Syria. May 2018.
The Raqqa Civil Defense, has 38 employees including firefighters, an emergency medical response unit, and body recovery/exhumation workers, as well as a forensic doctor. They restarted their work in January 2018 following the city's liberation, and have been in part supported by the USAID program called START. The team does not have heavy machinery to move most rubble to retrieve bodies, and they are in a race against time to recover as many as possible before a potential disease breaks out. The head of the civil defense, Yasser El Khamis, estimates that thousands remain under the rubble in the city. •

Smoke from a previously unexploded bomb rises in the distance in Raqqa, Syria, on Saturday, May 12, 2018. Locals were unclear as to whether the explosion was caused by an unexploded car bomb, or a shell from an airstrike that did not detonate. At least one civilian died in this incident, while another was missing.

Late rains this year compounded Raqqa’s woes, as the city depends on agricultural goods from the farmlands around the area.

Young students help a teacher prop up a whiteboard as she tries to use a rock to hammer the board into the wall at the heavily damaged Hawary Bu Medyan School in Raqqa, Syria. May 2018. The school, located opposite the building that previously housed the Hisba - ISIS’s religious police - was the site of intense fighting during the offensive to retake the city from the extremist group. The school reopened in January of this year after it had been cleared of mines but has few resources to help support its teachers, let alone rebuild. •

Material for wedding dresses on display in Raqqa, Syria. Amidst the near wholesale destruction of a city once home to over 400,000, the road to rebuilding is immense. #Repost @stern ・・・
Sein Land ist zerstört, so zeigt ein Schneider auf der Straße, was unter dem IS verboten war: bunte Stoffe für Hochzeitskleider. DIE ÜBERLEBENDEN:
Der „Islamische Staat“ unterjochte Raqqa, die Amerikaner befreiten die syrische Stadt mit Bomben. Jetzt liegt sie in Trümmern, über ihr der Geruch der Toten. Wer hilft den Menschen zurück ins Leben?
