US-led coalition airstrikes have claimed the lives of at least 24 people in Syria’s eastern Dayr al-Zawr province.

The attacks also injured a large number of people and destroyed or severally damaged civilian property.

The incident took place just hours after Damascus called on the United Nations Security Council to act against the insistence of the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group on perpetrating massacres against the Syrian nation.

The US-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh targets inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.
