US-led coalition airstrikes purportedly fighting the terrorist Takfiri Daesh group in eastern Syria, killed large number of civilians, mostly women, and children.

Iran Press/Middle East: Warplanes of the US-led International Coalition on Saturday launched dozens of airstrikes on Al-Baghouz Camp in eastern part of Deir Ezzor Province, claiming the lives of many Syrian citizens and injuring many more, SANA reported.  

At least 50 people were killed and scores of others injured on Monday when US-led jets targeted families fleeing the last vestiges of terrorist group, Daesh's territorial rule near the Iraqi border.

Earlier this month, US warplanes also bombed the same troubled region with internationally-banned white phosphorus munitions, killing several people.

One of the deadliest US-led coalition attacks in Deir Ezzor, occurred on 17 November 2018 in which at least 40 civilians were killed.

The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in January that continued airstrikes by the US-led coalition against ordinary people and civilian targets showed the alliance’s reckless disregard for the UN Charter as well as international law. 103/211/209
