New US-led raids leave 16 civilians dead in eastern Syria

More than a dozen civilians have been killed and several others have sustained injuries when the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group carried out separate aerial attacks…

in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr as well as the northeastern province of Hasakah.

Syria’s official news agency, SANA, reported that 10 civilians lost their lives when US-led military aircraft bombarded al-Duwaiji village in the Tal Shaer district of Dayr al-Zawr Province near the border with Iraq.

An unspecified number of paramedics were also killed as they rushed to the area to save the lives of those buried under the debris of collapsed buildings.

Separately, six people lost their lives when a residential area of al-Da’ij village in the Hasakah Province was hit by US-led fighter jets.

On October 11, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said the US-led coalition was trying to destroy the Arab country and prolong the armed conflict there.
