At least 12 civilians — members of the same family — have been killed in US-led coalition raids in northeastern Syria on Saturday.
“The air strikes and artillery fire (Friday night) by the international coalition on the village of Hidaj, held by ISIL in the southern sector of Hasakeh province, killed at least 12 people,” the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The civilians — including two women and their children — belonged to the same family, it added.
The deaths bring to “20 the number of civilians killed by the coalition in 24 hours east of the Euphrates River”, said the Observatory.
On Thursday, eight other civilians were killed in coalition strikes in Deir Ezzor province, south of Hasakeh.
