On Saturday, Syrian state media reported that at least 43 civilians were killed as a result of a US-led coalition airstrike in Syria's Raqqa. The Syrian Foreign Ministry condemned the airstrikes and sent two letters the UN secretary general and the head of the Security Council, in which the US-led coalition's actions were compared to the Daesh crimes.
On May 31, UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O'Brien said that over 100 Syrian civilians had been killed as a result of the airstrikes of the US-led international anti-terrorist coalition in the provinces of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor in recent weeks.
Syrian army as well as numerous armed groups, such as the SDF have been fighting against Daesh that had occupied vast territories of the Middle Eastern country, including Raqqa. The SDF are currently conducting the Wrath of Euphrates operation aimed at liberation of the de-facto capital of the self-proclaimed Daesh caliphate.
