The US-led International “anti-ISIS” coalition forces continue to commit their war crimes against the Syrian civilians.

On Monday, 45 civilians were killed after US Air Force jets struck Al Twasu’ayia neighborhood in the city of Raqqah. 

Although the coalition forces claim to have attacked ISIS positions in the city, they actually targeted two residential buildings in Al Twasu’ayia neighborhood, killing at least 45 civilians and injuring dozens more, in addition to causing massive material damage to public and private properties.

It is noteworthy that these attacks coincide with advancements, recently made by the Syrian Army. 

On Sunday, the coalition forces attacked civilians in the village of Buqrus Fouqani and the town of Abu Kamal, both located in the eastern countryside of Deir Ez Zour province. 12 civilians, majority of them being women and children, were killed in those raids. 

The coalition jets also continue their series of attacks against civilians in the area of ​​ Jazeera in northern Syria where last month several crimes against civilians were documented, in addition targeting a school in the city of Raqqah which housed dozens of refugee families from the eastern countryside of Deir Ez Zour who fled ISIS terror. 

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.

The so-called international “anti ISIS” coalition is led by Washington and conducts its actions within the Syrian territory without the approval of the UN Security Council or the Syrian government, and repeatedly continues to bomb the civilian areas.

Just last month, the coalition jets struck the civilian homes in Badou neighborhood of Raqqah and raided the village of Shabaab in Deir Ez Zour countryside, killing 11 civilians, all of them from the same household.

The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has so far urged the UN Security Council and the United Nations to put an end to this bloodshed multiple times, although to no avail.
