U.S.-LED COALITION KILLS OVER 3,000 CIVILIANS IN SYRIA SINCE 2014: WAR MONITOR

DAMASCUS, Syria, The U.S.-led coalition, has killed as many as 3,222 civilians, since its operations started in Syria in 2014, a war monitor reported, Tuesday.

A total of 768 children and 562 women were among those killed, by the strikes of the U.S.-led coalition, in the northern provinces of Hasakah, Raqqa, Aleppo, Idlib and the eastern province of Deir al-Zour, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The latest attacks by the U.S. coalition were reported on Saturday, when the state news agency SANA, said, 63 civilians had been killed within 24 hours, as a result of the U.S.-led strikes, on areas controlled by the Daesh, in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour.

The coalition entered the battles in Syria, in 2014, with the government questioning the intention of the U.S. and branding its intervention as illegal, as it happened without the consent of the Syrian administration.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry, recently urged the UN to conduct an international investigation into the "crimes" of the U.S.-led coalition. Its latest calls came, after the Syrian government repeatedly urged the international community to dissolve the U.S. coalition.

The coalition has been supporting the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in their fight against the Daesh, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour. The attacks focused on the last Daesh-held pocket, with the SDF making progress in the current battle, which started over a month ago, to eradicate the Daesh from that oil-rich region, near the Iraqi border.
