US to ‘clear rubble’, restore basic services after the fall of ISIS in Raqqa — State Dep.

The United States will take the lead in helping to clear rubble and restore basic services after the fall of Islamic State in its Syrian stronghold of Raqqa, told Reuters citing the U.S. State Department as saying on Tuesday.

“We will assist and take, essentially, the lead in bringing back the water, electricity and all of that,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told a briefing. “But eventually the governance of the country of Syria is something that I think all nations remain very interested in.”
