    Ar-Raqqah L-M20

    Hello, I read that L-M20 was found in 51% of Syrians from Al-Raqqah, a northern Syrian city (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_L-M20). Why is this y-dna so common in especially that city? Does anyone know and can explain?

    Also exists in Iran, parts of Levant and Armenia as far as I remember. For the OP, they probably sampled a closely related family or a tribe(founder effects are probably the reason)

    It seems you are very right. Most probably some of them are in same clan.
