U.S.-Led Airstrikes Kill 11 People East of Deir-ez-Zor

U.S.-led airstrikes on an Islamic State (ISIS)-held village in the eastern part of Deir-ez-Zor province killed at least 11 people on Saturday, the group’s social media pages reported.

The strikes on the village of Al-Bahra come as the U.S-backed Syrian Democratic Forces press to seize the last ISIS pockets in the eastern province.

Last week, U.S.-led airstrikes on Shafah, a village east of the Euphrates, killed 13 people including seven women, Reuters said.

The militant group still holds patches of desert on either side of the Euphrates River in Deir-ez-Zor province, as well as isolated pockets of ground elsewhere in Syria.

The U.S.-led anti-ISIS coalition reported on Jan. 22 that it had killed an estimated 145-150 militant fighters in a command center near Al-Shafah, close to the Iraqi border.
