US Coalition Airstrikes in Syria Kill 10 Civilians North of Raqqa

At least 10 civilians were killed in a US-led coalition air assault on a makeshift camp of the displaced people who had fled an ISIS-held town North of Raqqa in Northeastern Syria.

Syrian state news agency, SANA said the US-led coalition fighter jets bombed the tents erected for the civilians who have just escaped from the ISIL-held town of Hazimeh North of Raqqa and at least 10 people lost their lives in the aerial attacks.

Local sources also reported that coalition airstrikes targeted the tents of displaced people in Maisaloun farm North of Raqqa city, adding that several more people were injured in the bombing done by the US-led coalition.

The airstrikes came less than a week after over 17 civilians were killed and many more were wounded in a series of separate air attacks by the US-led coalition and Turkish Air Force in the two Syrian provinces of Raqqa and Aleppo.

The US-led coalition's fighter jets bombed a spinning workshop in the village of al-Salehiyeh in Raqqa, killing three workers and seven residents of the village.

Several villagers were also wounded and their houses sustained major damage in the air raid.

Elsewhere, Turkish warplanes in cooperation with the US drones attacked the town of al-Sheikh Naser Northeast of the town of al-Bab in Syria's Aleppo province, leaving seven civilians dead and ten more wounded.

Earlier this month, over 20 civilians were killed and many more were wounded in the US-led coalition airstrikes in two villages North of Raqqa.

The US-led coalition's fighter jets bombed the ISIS-villages of al-Hisheh and Khaniz, while backing the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces' (SDF) offensive there.

At least 20 civilians were killed and more villagers were injured in the air raids.
