Over 15 civilians, mostly women and children, were killed in the US-led coalition fighter jets’ airstrike in Southeastern Deir Ezzur

Over 15 civilians, mostly women and children, were killed in the US-led coalition fighter jets’ airstrike in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, local sources reported on Sunday.

The sources said that the warplanes targeted residential units near Khalid Bin Walid in the small town of Hajin in Southeastern Deir Ezzur on Saturday, killing at least 15 civilians, mostly women and children, and injuring tens of others.

The sources said some of the injured are in critical conditions.

The Arabic-language website of SANA news agency quoted several local sources in Deir Ezzur as saying last week that the US warplanes targeted several districts in the town of Hajin in Eastern Deir Ezzur with white phosphorous bombs which are forbidden internationally.

This was the second time in a month that the US-led coalition’s fighter jets attacked Deir Ezzur with banned weapons under the pretext of fighting the ISIL.
