U.S.-LED AIR STRIKE KILLS 40 CIVILIANS IN SYRIA’S DEIR AL-ZOUR

The U.S.-led coalition, struck a village in Syria's eastern province of Deir al-Zour, killing 40 civilians, state news agency SANA reported, on Wednesday.

Mostly women and children are among those killed, when the U.S.-led air strike targeted the village of Dablan, in the countryside of Deir al-Zour, said SANA.

The attack comes, a day after a similar air strike killed 57 people, half of whom civilians, in a prison held by the Daesh, in the eastern city of Mayadeen in Deir al-Zour.

The U.S.-led coalition has been active recently, in striking Daesh positions in Raqqa and Deir al-Zour, as part of its resolve, to support the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces group, in their push to dislodge the Daesh out of Raqqa and parts of Deir al-Zour.

But civilian casualties are falling, on daily basis, as a result of such strikes
