Syrians living under ISIS rule in its de facto capital of Raqqa fear they will pay the price for the group's Paris attacks with more airstrikes.The French airstrikes had been preceded by an attack by warplanes from Russia, whose air force has pounded the city several times since September in its own campaign in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.Movement in the city has been further restricted since the French strikes.It said the strikes hit two ISIS centers in Raqqa and an area where Kayla Mueller, a U.S. hostage, had been held before being killed earlier this year.Raqqa was the first city to fall to rebels fighting to overthrow Assad in 2013 and was controlled by a variety of groups until ISIS rose to dominance and rapidly eliminated rival insurgents.
