At least 12 people, all of them from a single family were killed, after aircrafts of the US-led so-called “anti-ISIS” international coalition attacked the residential areas in Tal Al Shayer, a town located in the southeastern countryside of the northeastern Syrian town of Hasakeh, close to Iraqi border.

The latest atrocity happened on Monday night.

Despite once again targeting civilians, no criticism was drawn by the UN Security Council or any other international body.

This was just one of the many war crimes, deliberately carried against the Syria civilians in recent weeks. 

Previously, On June 14th, the coalition aircrafts launched several airstrikes and targeted a water crossing on the Euphrates River, east of Deir Ez Zour city. 3 civilians lost their lives in the assault.

Five days prior, On June 9th, the coalition forces went even further and carried out no less than 25 air strikes, while using the bombs, containing the internationally banned white phosphorus.

The strikes hit the residential areas in the western outskirts of Raqqah city and the area between the neighbourhoods of Al Sebahi, Mashalab and Al Sinaa.

17 people, majority of them being women and children, were killed in these raids.
