US-led coalition airstrikes on Syria's Deir Ezzor kill civilians
The so-called US-led coalition on Thursday renewed airstrikes targeting civilians’ houses in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, Syria.
Iran Press/Middle East: The so-called US-led coalition warplanes launched several airstrikes against residential neighborhoods in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor in Syria, claiming the lives of 23 civilians.
The airstrikes caused the destruction of residential houses in Deir Ezzor, Iran Press reported.
Also on Oct 20, at least 62 civilians were martyred in three 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.
Over the past few days, warplanes of the so-called US-led coalition intensified their aggression against Deir Ezzor province as they targeted civilians’ houses claiming the lives of tens of civilians, some of them women and children.
On Sep. 30, Syria's foreign and expatriates minister Walid al-Moallem at the United Nations General Assembly said: "the so-called US-led coalition should have been more aptly named the Coalition to Support Terrorists and War Crimes."
According to the latest statistics of Deir Ezzor governorate, since the beginning of 2018, the total number of the residents in the province is 1,037,037.
After breaking the siege imposed by ISIS terrorists on the city of Deir Ezzor in early September last year, the government in cooperation with civil society organizations and professional associations have worked hard to restore life to the city and its surrounding countryside after years of terrorism.
Since it was illegally formed outside the jurisdiction of the UN Security Council in 2014, under the pretext of fighting ISIS, the so-called US-led coalition has been committing massacres against innocent civilians, killing hundreds of people and injuring others. 101/201
