Deir Ezzor, The US-led International coalition warplanes on Thursday renewed airstrikes targeting citizens' houses in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

Local sources told SANA that the int'l coalition warplanes launched several airstrikes against residential neighborhoods in al-Boubadran and al-Sousa villages in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, claiming the lives of 23 civilians and the destruction of residential houses in the villages.

The new massacre was committed in less than 24 hours after destroying 4 houses in al-Sha'afa village in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor which resulted in the martyrdom and injury of a number of citizens. More than 60 civilians were killed and hundreds of people were displaced due to the destruction of their houses in al-Sha'afa village two days earlier.
