Business As Usual In Syria As US-Led Coalition Leaves 20 Civilians Dead

While the World has been following the US Elections and who is to enter the White House it’s been business as usual in the middle east as the US-led Coalition bomb a village north of Raqqa in Syria, leaving at least 20 civilians dead, BBC News reports:

A US-led coalition air strike killed at least 20 civilians in a village north of so-called Islamic State’s Syrian stronghold of Raqqa, activists say.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that six women and a child were among those who died in the raids on al-Heisha overnight.

A coalition spokesman confirmed that it had conducted strikes in the area.

But Col John Dorrian told the AFP news agency that “more specific information is needed to conclusively determine responsibility” for any civilian casualties.

A coalition statement said seven strikes near the town of Ain Issa, about 14km (9 miles) west of al-Heisha, on Tuesday had engaged six IS tactical units and destroyed three fighting positions, a vehicle, and a car bomb facility.

A spokeswoman for the Kurdish-Arab alliance, the Syria Democratic Forces (SDF), dismissed the reports of civilian casualties as “IS news”.

On Sunday, the SDF announced that it had begun a campaign to isolate and ultimately take control of Raqqa, which IS has controlled for almost three years.
