Fresh U.S. Air Strikes Kill 10 Syrian Civilians in Daesh-held Raqqah

Damascus, July 14 (RHC)-- Nearly a dozen civilians have lost their lives when the U.S.-led coalition purportedly fighting the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group carried out a string of aerial attacks in Syria's militant-held northern city of Raqqah. 

Informed sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the airstrikes targeted al-Diriyah neighborhood of the city, located about 455 kilometers (283 miles) northeast of the capital Damascus, early on Thursday, Arabic-language Baladi news network reported.  The sources added that seven of the victims were members of one family. 

The U.S.-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh targets inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a United Nations mandate. 

The U.S.-led coalition has repeatedly been accused of targeting and killing civilians.  It has also been largely incapable of fulfilling its declared aim of destroying Daesh.
