At least 13 civilians killed in int'l coalition strike in Syria
At least 13 civilians died as a result of an airstrike carried out by the international coalition in Syria's Deir ez-Zor Province, Trend reported citing Sputnik.
Syrian media have frequently reported civilian casualties resulting from US-led coalition airstrikes. Previously, the coalition acknowledged that at least 1,114 civilians have been killed in Syria and Iraq as a result of its campaign to defeat Daesh.
Syrian authorities have repeatedly called on the United Nations to hold those responsible for civilian deaths accountable and put an end to the US-led coalition's unauthorised presence on Syrian territory. The US-led coalition's activities in Syria are not endorsed by the Syrian government, President Bashar al-Assad nor the United Nations Security Council.
