More than 45 civilians were killed and several more were injured in the US-led collation air raids on residential areas in the ISIL-held Raqqa city, local sources said on Tuesday.

The sources said that over 45 civilians were killed and several more were wounded after US’ jets targeted the al-Touse’eiyah district in Raqqa city.

The incident comes just one day after the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that more than 3,000 people, including nearly 1,000 civilians, have been killed during the past month.

In the meantime, the UK-based monitoring group says at least 29 people have been killed in US airstrikes in Raqqa city.

The Syrian state news agency reported on Monday that the coalition’s strikes hit residential areas in al-Kataf street, wheat silos, nearby areas of al-Shafe’ei mosque and al-Mesriyeh square in the town of Albu Kamal in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, killing five civilians.

It added that another strike targeted Baqras Foqani settlement in the Eastern territories of the province, claiming the lives of seven people.

The airstrikes left ten civilians injured and caused damage to the nearby houses and infrastructure, the news agency specified, adding that some of the injured are in critical condition.
