At least three civilians have lost their lives and several others sustained injuries when the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group conducted a series of airstrikes in Syria’s embattled eastern province of Deir Ezzor.
Local sources told Syria’s official news agency SANA that the aerial attacks hit al-Tayyaneh town in the province on Saturday.
Local sources, requesting anonymity, told SANA that 20 people were killed in the raid when US-led warplanes bombarded residential buildings in al-Baghuz al-Tahtani.
“This new crime is in line with the criminal acts that the US-led coalition is perpetrating systematically and on a daily basis against Syrian people, and in flagrant violation of Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” said the letters.
“The activities of this alliance are illegal as it has been formed outside the UN framework. Such acts have only contributed to the expansion of extremist terrorist organizations, especially Daesh. Cooperation and coordination between these terrorist groups and this alliance has been documented in numerous letters that [the] Syrian Arab Republic has sent to the Security Council,” added the letters.
