Coalition Accidentally Bombs SDF Forces in Eastern Deir-ez-Zor

Seven members of the Syrian Democratic Forces were killed in an “accidental” strike by international coalition warplanes on one of their positions in the eastern Al-Bukamal countryside in Deir-ez-Zor.

Faisal Said, a resident from Al-Bukamal, told the Al-Hal website that “a mistaken strike by the international coalition struck an SDF grouping near the town of Al-Shaafa in the city’s countryside, which killed seven and wounded 12 others.”

The source added that “the same bombing struck ISIS [Islamic State] groups on the same town’s outskirts, killing 12.”

In addition, “the SDF sent military reinforcements to their positions near the Conoco gas field in the eastern Deir-ez-Zor countryside,” according to the sources.

In another incident, “a child was killed in the town of Al-Zor when an anti-aircraft shell exploded in his hands while trying to play with it and open it up,” according to the same source.
