Liwa Thuwar Raqqa (LTR - the Revolutionaries of Raqqa Brigade) is an anti-Islamic State (IS) and Syrian government insurgency group in Raqqa. The group is led by "Abu Eisa". The LTR was initially aligned with Jabhat al Nusrah (JN) in an attempt to counter increased presence of the IS at Raqqa. During early 2014 the LTR distanced itself from JN following infighting between the IS and various rebel groups in Raqqa. The LTR has achieved some victories against the IS in villages west of Tel Abyad, though without significant impact on IS presence in Raqqa. Centre of OperationsLTR is present within the surrounding areas of Raqqa:

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
