DAMASCUS, Syria, At least 32 civilians were killed, over the past 24 hours, by U.S.-led air strikes on Syria’s eastern province of Deir al-Zour, a war watchdog reported, Friday.
The U.S. coalition launched air strikes on the town of Souseh, which is located in the last pocket held by the Daesh militants, in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Women and children were among those killed, in the aerial bombardment, the London-based watchdog said.
The U.S.-led coalition is supporting the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, in their advance on the Daesh-held areas, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, in eastern Deir al-Zour.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry, recently urged the UN, to conduct an international investigation, into the “crimes” of the U.S.-led coalition in Syria, charging that, Washington is using the anti-Daesh battles, as a pretext for continued intervention in Syria’s affairs.
The U.S.-led coalition, entered the course of anti-Daesh battles in Syria in 2014, without the consent of the Syrian government, which questions its intention, and brands its intervention as illegal.
