At least 40 people were killed in new US-led coalition airstrike on Al-Buqa'an village in the surrounding of Hajian Town in Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria.

Iran Press/ Middle East: Most of the victims of the US-led coalition's new aggression on Saturday are Syrian women and children; while the coalition claimed that no civilian casualties resulted from the operation, Iran Press News Agency reported.

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.

According to the latest statistics of Deir Ezzor province, 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.
