US Airstrikes Kill 11 Syrian Civilians in Deir ez-Zor

US Airstrikes Kill 11 Syrian Civilians in Deir ez-Zor

Alwaght- US-led coalition's fresh airstrikes in Syria’s embattled eastern province of Deir ez-Zor have killed at least 11 civilians, mostly women and children.

Local sources, requesting anonymity, told Syria’s official news agency SANA on Friday that the airstrikes pounded multiple parts of the village of al-Shafa in the east of the flashpoint province, adding that three women and five children were among the victims.

The report further said that the death toll could rise as some of the wounded were in critical condition due to the intensity of the aerial aggression.

On November 17, the so-called military coalition killed at least 40 people after its warplanes struck the village of al-Buqa'an on the outskirts of Hajin town in the same province, leaving dozens more wounded.

On November 13, the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned a recent airstrike by the US-led coalition against the eastern town of al-Shaafah, which left more than 60 people dead and injured, arguing that the massacre clearly pointed to the fact that members of the military alliance had no respect for moral values, international rules and regulations besides the lives of innocent civilians.

The ministry, in two separate letters, addressed to United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the rotating president of the UN Security Council Ma Zhaoxu, called on the Security Council to fulfill its responsibilities and stop US-led aerial assaults.

Furthermore, the US-led coalition has in multiple occasions used internationally-banned white phosphorus munitions in bombing raids across the province, particularly the town of Hajin, located some 110 kilometers east of the provincial capital city of Deir ez-Zor.

In June last year, Human Rights Watch warned that the US-led coalition was deploying white phosphorous bombs in both Iraq and Syria.

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

The military alliance has repeatedly been accused of targeting and killing civilians. It has also been largely incapable of achieving its declared goal of destroying ISIS.
