U.S.-LED AIR STRIKE KILLS 30 CIVILIANS IN SYRIA’S RAQQA

DAMASCUS, Syria, July 25 (NNN-XINHUA) - At least 30 civilians were killed on Monday, when a U.S.-led air strike hit a prison, run by the Daesh in Syria's northern city of Raqqa, local Sham FM radio reported.

The strike, by the U.S.-led coalition, struck the prison, where the civilians were held captives, by the Daesh, in the central part of Raqqa, said the report.

The attack came, hours after the U.S. coalition struck areas in Mayadeen city, in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour, killing dozens of people, according to the state TV.

Since entering Syria, to fight the Daesh in 2014, the U.S. coalition has killed dozens of civilians, in areas controlled by the Daesh in northern and eastern Syria.

The U.S. has been recently heavily backing the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, in their push to capture Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Daesh in Syria.-
