    The US-led coalition jets struck villages in the Raqqa province on Monday and killed at least 10 Syrian civilians, Syrian state-run SANA news agency reported.

    According to SANA citing local sources, the US-led coalition targeted an area where a cotton processing factory is located.

    Three factory workers, a resident of the al-Salehia village, as well as a family of six people, including children, have been killed in the strike.

    The attack also left many civilians injured, SANA reported.

    The infrastructure of the village and citizens' property have also been damaged as the result of the strike.

    In October, Amnesty International released a report, stating that the US-led coalition's strikes in Syria killed at least 300 civilians in two years.

    The watchdog called for thorough investigation into reports of civilian deaths during the coalition's aerial operation, adding that the US authorities had not given any response to a memorandum sent by the watchdog "to raise questions about the conduct of Coalition forces in Syria."
