Interviews:

Ibrahim, Citizen of Raqqa:
(01:56) ISIS is imposing taxes on the citizens for water, electricity, cleaning and even telecommunication. The amount of money demanded from the citizens varies from between 500-1000 Syrian Pounds. Even though they do not provide any help or support for the citizens, there are no salaries and the citizens of Raqqa have been severely affected by the regime and ISIS. People are afraid of the airstrikes because it could happen during daytime, they are afraid. (02:36)

Abdul Rahman, Citizen of Raqqa:
(02:37) ISIS imposed taxes on civilians for water, electricity and many other things. We start with the cleaning services, we are supposed to pay the tax for the Islamic affairs authority, but they did not clean the streets. And for the telecommunication, we keep paying but the phone lines cut constantly. It is very bad. As for the electricity, there was no electricity in Raqqa for five continuous days. ISIS is funding itself by imposing taxes on the civilians. (03:21)
