US-coalition attack kills civilians in eastern Syria

Tehran, Jan 23, IRNA – The US-led coalition air attack on Deir ez-Zor, eastern Syria has claimed the lives of some civilians and injured a number of others who were escaping from ISIS enclaves.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (IRNA) quoted local sources as saying that the US-coalition jetfighters attacked the cars carrying Syrian citizens who were moving out of ISIS enclaves in Al-Baghuz Fawqani town.

The local sources added that due to the serious condition of those who were injured, the death toll of the accident is subject to increase.

Earlier, the US-coalition in a similar disaster killed 20 civilians including women and kids.

The coalition targeted scores of families who were trying to escape the areas which are under the control of ISIS terrorists.

In the pre-text of fighting the terrorist group Daesh (ISIS), US together with some allies have established a so-called international coalition out of the framework of the United Nations since August 2014.

The innocent Syrian civilians have so far been killed in Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor, Al-Hasakah and Aleppo.
