The warplanes of the US-led international coalition perpetrated a new massacre, claiming the lives of 6 civilians and injuring 10 others in Abu Kamal city in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
Local sources told SANA on Saturday that the warplanes of the coalition shelled Aish Hospital, al-Nadi, and al-Shuhada’a roundabout in Abu Kamal city, killing 6 civilians, among them women and children, and injuring 10 others, in addition to causing material damage to the infrastructure.
This is the fourth air raid of the coalition in Deir ez-Zor over the month, according to SANA.
On Saturday, SANA reported that the coalition, which ostensibly fights Daesh, hit houses in al-Mayadeen, killing 10, including five children.
On July 27, a US-led coalition airstrike in the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor claimed the lives of 18 civilians and left over 20 injured. Eyewitnesses specified that the attack hit Tayba, located in the western part of the province near Mayadeen, also damaging houses and local infrastructure, according to SANA.
In late June, the coalition conducted three airstrikes killing 90 civilians, including women and children, in a village and al-Mayadeen.
The US-led coalition of 68 nations started to carry out airstrikes against ISIL in Syria and Iraq in 2014, with the strikes in Syria not being authorized by the government of President Bashar Assad or the UN Security Council.
