Several Syrian Civilians Killed in US Air Raids in Deir Ezzur


 A sum of eight civilians were killed and several more were wounded in a fresh round of air attacks by the US-led coalition fighter jets in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur on Monday.

The warplanes bombed several times the township of al-Souseh in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, killing eight civilians, including women and children, and wounding at least a dozen others.

Local sources said that some of the injured are in critical conditions, adding that the township’s infrastructures and residential units have sustained major damage in the attacks.

In a similar development on Friday, the warplanes conducted several raids on Albaquz and al-Souseh townships on the Eastern bank of the Euphrates River near the town of Albu Kamal, killing over 30 civilians and wounding tens more, including several women and children.

Medical sources reported that the death toll is likely to increase as some of the injured are in critical conditions.
