U.S.-led Airstrike Kills More than 20 Civilians in Syria

Damascus, May 15 (RHC)-- Nearly two dozen civilians lost their lives when the U.S.-led coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group carried out an aerial attack against an area in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr near the border with Iraq. 

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the airstrike targeted the city of Abu Kamal on the Euphrates River at around 3 a.m. local time (0100 GMT) on Monday. 

The group noted that some of those killed in the strike were civilians displaced from both Syria's militant-held northern province of Raqqah and neighboring Iraq. 

The development came less than two days after a U.S.-led aerial attack in Raqqah Province killed 12 women.  The SOHR said the Sunday afternoon strike had hit vehicles carrying farm workers home from fields in the eastern part of the province.
