Coalition Jets Strike Raqqa Village, Kill at Least Ten Civilians - Reports
DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — Four civilians were killed and eight were injured in the early morning air attack.

The similar incident reportedly took place on November 21, when the coalition jets struck a cotton processing factory located in al-Salehia settlement, killing at least 10 Syrians, including children, and wounding dozens of civilians.

Later in the day, US Department of Defense spokesman Eric Pahon denied the accusations.

Earlier in November, the Syrian Democratic Forces announced Operation Wrath of Euphrates to reclaim the city of Raqqa from the militants. Captured in 2013, Raqqa serves as Daesh's de facto capital in Syria.
