US airstrikes kill 10 civilians in eastern Syria


PV International Desk : At least ten civilians have lost their lives and dozens sustained injuries in a string of airstrikes led by United States against ISIS in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr, reports PressTV.

Local sources told Syria’s official news agency SANA that the aerial attacks targeted the village of Tayibe in the eastern part of the province located 450 kilometers northeast of the capital Damascus on Saturday (July 29) killing at least ten people and destroying the civilian infrastructure there.

The sources added that seven of the victims were members of a same family noting that five children were among the dead.

The airstrike came only two days after at least 18 people were killed and another 20 others wounded after US-led military aircraft bombarded the same Syrian village.

On July 26 Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that at least 29 people including eight children had been killed in a US-led strike against the ISIS-held northern Syrian city of Raqqah.
