January 3, 2019, an airstrike by the US-led coalition on Syria’s eastern province of Deir ez-Zor killed 11 members of one family.
Warplanes of the US-led coalition launched an aggression on the town, under the pretext of combating Deash terrorists, killing 11 citizens from one family. The US-led coalition regularly carries out airstrikes in the eastern Deir ez-Zor province and has recently been concentrating its air power on Hajin and Sha’afa.
Syria and Iraq have become a foothold for the US-led coalition of more than 70 countries to conduct military operations against Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS). The coalition’s operations in Syria have not been authorized by the government of President Bashar al-Assad or the UN Security Council.
In November 2018, the US-led coalition used internationally prohibited cluster bombs in airstrikes on Hajin and Sha’afa. Multiple media reports alleged that toxic white phosphorus munitions was used in the coalition’s repeated attacks in the region.
The US Defense Department has dismissed the allegations as false, maintaining that the coalition’s airstrikes in Syria conform with the laws of armed conflict. The US-led coalition has been launching airstrikes against what it calls Daesh* targets in Syria since 2014. Syrian authorities have repeatedly urged the United Nations to take measures targeting the perpetrators of the attacks and put an end to the coalition’s unauthorized presence in Syria.
President Trump’s decision to withdraw from Syria “in no way changes anything that this administration is working on alongside Israel.” Israeli charges Iran with working to increase its clout in Iraq and Syria as a “platform for a force build-up that could also threaten the state of Israel.”
