  • Tens of civilians die in fresh US massacre at Deir Ezzor, Syria

At least 62 civilians were martyred in three new massacres committed by the US-led coalition in the villages of al-Suseh and al-Bubadran in al-Bukmal region in Syria's Deir Ezzor province.

Iran PressMiddle East: Civil sources told SANA news agency that warplanes of the US-led coalition, over the past 24 hours, launched airstrikes on al-Alyat area in Al-Suseh village, al-Boukamal countryside in Syria, claiming the lives of 15 civilians, mostly children and women.

The source added that 37 civilians were also martyred as dozens were injured in the airstrikes of the coalition raids on the mosque of Othman bin Affan.

The third airstrike by the US-led coalition, according to the sources, targeted Ammar bin Yasser mosque in the village of al-Boubadran, claiming the livers of 10 civilians and wounding others.

The sources said that the death toll is likely to rise as most of the wounded sustained serious injuries and the difficulty of being evacuated from the rubble of  houses destroyed by the airstrikes.

Meanwhile, Syrian foreign and expatriates ministry said the heinous crime committed by the illegitimate US-led Coalition in al-Sousa and al-Bubadran villages in Deir Ezzor countryside prove once again its disregard for international law.

The ministry demanded a transparent and independent international investigation into this crime and other crimes on its territories.

Syria’s demand came in two letters the ministry addressed to the UN Secretary-General and President of the United Nations Security Council that SANA received a copy of on Saturday.

Since it was illegally formed outside the jurisdiction of the U.N. Security Council in 2014, under the pretext of fighting ISIS, the alliance has been committing massacres against innocent civilians, killing hundreds of people and injuring others.

On Saturday, Oct. 13, the US-led coalition lunched airstrikes with the internationally-banned white phosphorus bombs on Hajin city in Deir-Ezzor southeastern countryside, claiming the lives of a number of civilians.
