US-led coalition kills 8 civilians in Hajin

The #US-led coalition has once again carried out missile attacks in eastern Syria, causing more death and destruction in the war-battered country.

At least eight civilians lost their lives after US #warplanes targeted the town of Hajin in eastern Dayr al-Zawr province. All the victims were members of the same family. The air raids also targeted and completely destroyed a hospital in Hajin. The coalition has been conducting airstrikes in #Syria since September 2014.

Many civilians have been killed in such raids that purportedly targeted the positions of #Daesh terrorists in the country. Damascus has repeatedly said the US military presence and operations on its soil are acts of aggression that violate the country’s sovereignty.
