US-led airstrikes claim dozens of civilian lives in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr

Dozens of civilians, including women and children, have been killed after the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the terrorist Takfiri Daesh group carried out a series of aerial assaults in Syria’s troubled eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Syria’s official news agency SANA that 50 people were killed and scores of others injured on Monday when US-led warplanes targeted families fleeing the last vestiges of Daesh's territorial rule in the besieged village of Baghouz near the Iraqi border.

The sources added that the death toll was expected to rise as some of the wounded were in critical condition.

The development came a few days after US-led coalition warplanes dropped white phosphorus bombs on Baghouz, leaving a number of citizens, mostly women and children, dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The use of white phosphorus for anything other than a smoke screen is a war crime.
