Children, woman killed in US airstrikes in Syria
Three children and a woman have been killed in eastern Syria in airstrikes conducted by the US-led coalition claiming to fight Daesh terrorist group.
Media and local sources said the US airstrikes hit al-Bukamal city in the province of Dayr al-Zawr near the border with Iraq on Monday, killing four and inflicting heavy losses on properties.
The US-led coalition has been conducting air raids against what are alleged to be Daesh hideouts inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.
The coalition has repeatedly been accused of targeting and killing civilians. It has also been largely incapable of realizing its declared objective of annihilating Daesh.
