Over 50 Civilians Killed, Wounded in US-Led Coalition Airstrikes in Deir Ezzur

TEHRAN (FNA)- More than 50 civilians were killed and wounded during the US-led coalition’s airstrikes against a town in Eastern Deir Ezzur, local sources said on Thursday.

The sources confirmed that over 20 civilians were killed and 30 others were wounded after the coalition’s fighter jets pounded the town of Qaranij in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

A number of injured people are in critical conditions, they added.

Also, earlier this month, over 10 civilians from a family were killed and several more were wounded in the US-led coalition air raid in a residential region in Eastern Deir Ezzur, dissident-affiliated websites reported.

The websites reported that the US warplanes targeted the small town of al-Souseh on the Western bank of the Euphrates River in Eastern Deir Ezzur, killing 12 civilians and wounding several more.

The sources said that the entire victims, including five children and several women, were from a single family.

The websites added that the death toll will possibly rise due to the critical conditions of some of the injured.
