"More than 60 dead and wounded civilians as a result of an attack by the international coalition on the village of al-Sha'afa in the east of Deir ez-Zor province," SANA said, citing local sources.

Previously, another coalition airstrike on the city of Hajin in Syria's Deir ez-Zor province reportedly killed at least 15 civilians. Ikhbariya TV channel reported then that the majority among those killed were women and children.

Earlier, Damascus accused the US-led coalition of violating international law and killing civilians in a letter to the United Nations, saying that Washington wasn't fighting terrorism in the country.

The coalition’s strikes in Syria have repeatedly come under fire for a large number of deaths among the civilians. In 2017, the strikes in Raqqa led to at least 1,400 civilian deaths, according to London-based NGO Airwars estimates.
