The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) has just reported that the US-led coalition’s airstrikes on several targets in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province over the last few weeks have led to the wanton murder of yet more innocents.
Three children who were reported as residents of the village of Al-Shaafah died in one of the US-led coalition’s airstrike on the province, according to SANA.
Syrian media have reported recently about dozens of civilians killed in various villages in Deir Ez-Zor province.
The U.S coalition has repeatedly rejected media reports about the death of civilians, saying that the strikes had only targeted ISIS terrorists.
US-Led Coalition Airstrike in Hajin
On November 3, SANA reported about 15 civilians killed in a US-led coalition airstrike on the city of Hajin in Deir ez-Zor province.
According to reports, the coalition used white phosphorus in the airstrike.
“The International Coalition used shells with white phosphorus, prohibited by international conventions, during an air strike on the New Market area in Hajin in the east of Deir ez-Zor province,” the agency reported, citing local sources.
The city of Deir ez-Zor was partly occupied and besieged by Daesh between 2014 and 2017, when Syrian government forces launched an offensive against the terrorists and lifted the siege.
