At least 12 civilians, majority of them being women and children, were killed yesterday after jets of the so-called “anti-ISIS” international coalition bombed residential areas in the village of Buqrus Fouqani and the town of Abu Kamal, located in the eastern countryside of the Syrian province of Deir Ez Zour. 

According to the sources from the eastern countryside of Deir Ez Zour province, the coalition airstrikes hit Al Kitf Street, the siloses, the surroundings of Al Shafiei Mosque and Al Masiriyeh roundabout in the town of Abu Kamal, leaving at least five people dead.

Later, at least seven civilians, a newborn baby including, were killed after  coalition jets raided the village of Buqrus Fouqani.

10 people were also injured in both raids, in addition to the damage being caused to the public and private properties.

Jets of the so-called “anti-ISIS” international coalition are frequently carrying out raids on the Syrian soil without the approval from authorities in Damascus or the UN Security Council.

On Wednesday, the coalition jets dropped bombs containing the internationally banned white phosphorus while raiding the town of Al Suwar in Deir Ez Zour countryside, killing three civilians and injuring five others. 

A day earlier, the coalition jets carried out a massacre in the town of Markada, located south of the city of Hasakeh in northeastern Syria, killing three civilians, including two women, belonging to an Iraqi family of refugees from Mosul.
