Alwaght- US-led coalition's airstrikes has killed at least 12 civilians near the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor Syrian official news agency reported on Saturday.
According to the SANA news agency, the US-led coalition aircraft carried a series of strikes on residential neighborhoods in al-Mayadin city, located 29 miles southeast of Deir ez-Zor, as well as neighborhoods in Mahkan town near al-Mayadin. Most of the victims were women and children.
On Wednesday, media reported that 22 civilians in the Syrian cities of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor were killed by airstrikes of the US-led coalition.
The US-led coalition has been conducting air raids against what are said to be ISIS positions inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.
But the strikes have on many occasions resulted in civilian casualties and failed to fulfill their declared aim of countering terrorism.
