Alwaght- US-led coalition airstrikes killed on Friday at least 26 civilians, including 14 children, in the eastern town of Hajin near the Iraqi border.
According to the war monitor, the civilians, including 14 children and nine women, were all members of ISIS families.
The airstrikes reportedly targeted a ISIS hideout in the town of Hajin, located along the Euphrates River, south of Deir ez-Zor.
Last week, the Russian Defense Ministry said that the indiscriminate air strikes of the US-led coalition have led to the deaths of more than 120 civilians in the east of Syria over the past month. The ministry also said that the US-led coalition was using prohibited munitions in its strikes.
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Middle East and North Africa Bureau Director Amin Awad told Sputnik Thursday that some pockets of fighters for ISIS and other extremist groups still remain in numerous, hard to reach areas.
3,222 civilians have lost their lives ever since the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the ISIS terrorist group launched its aerial bombardment campaign in the conflict-plagued Arab country more than four years ago, the Observatory said in September.
The US-led air raids also resulted in the injury of hundreds of civilians, some of whom suffered permanent disabilities and had to have their limbs amputated.
The monitoring group noted that the civilians were killed by US-led warplanes in Syria’s northern province of Raqqah, northeastern province of Hasakah, northwestern Aleppo and Idlib provinces as well as Dayr al-Zawr province in the country's east.
