The US-led coalition jets bombed targets in the town of Al-Shafa in the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, the official Twitter account of Al Mayadeen TV channel said on Tuesday.
سوريا: مراسل الميادين: طائرات التحالف الأميركي تستهدف بغارات مكثفة بلدة الشعفة في ريف دير الزور الشرقي— قناة الميادين (@AlMayadeenNews) 30 октября 2018 г.
This comes two days after another airstrike in the village of Al-Sousse, situated in the eastern suburb of the city of Deir ez-Zor, which reportedly killed 5 civilians, including two children.
Earlier this month, 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 Syrian Foreign Ministry urged the United Nations to launch an investigation into a deadly airstrike carried out by the coalition in Deir ez-Zor, in which 62 people were killed and dozens injured.
The statement followed a series of bombings of the town of Hajin, which, according to Syrian news agency SANA, included the use of white phosphorus. A coalition spokesman denied the use of the prohibited material.
The US-led coalition has been operating in Syria against terrorists since 2014 without receiving any authorization from either the UN or the Syrian government.
