Fresh US-led airstrike kills five civilians in eastern Syria
A fresh US-led airstrike has killed at least five civilians, and injured tens of others in eastern Syria.
Middle East: Dozens of people were also wounded in the attack which targeted Hajjin village in the province of Deir al-Zour on Wednesday, according to an Iran Press report quoting Syria's SANA news agency.
Damascus has repeatedly called for a halt to the US-led bombing campaign, condemning it as a violation of its sovereignty.
Recently, the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates addressed the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the former rotating president of the UN Security Council Ma Zhaoxu in two separate letters and asked them to fulfill their responsibilities and stop US-led aerial assaults.
The ministry also called on the world body to propose an international, independent and impartial mechanism to investigate the crimes being perpetrated by the so-called US-led coalition. 206/103
