US-Led Coalition Commits Massacre in Deir ez-Zor Countryside

At least 60 civilians were martyred or injured in a new massacre carried out by the warplanes of the International Coalition in al-Sha’afa village in Deir ez-Zor’s eastern countryside.

Local sources told SANA’s reporter that on Monday, International Coalition warplanes conducted several sorties on residential neighborhoods in al-Sha’afa village, martyring or injuring more than 60 civilians.

The sources indicated that the continued aggression launched by the International Coalition on villages and towns in Deir ez-Zor’s southeastern countryside have displaced hundreds of civilians who were forced to leave their houses.

Washington, which formed the so-called International Coalition, outside of international legitimacy and without the approval of the Security Council, claims that it is fighting international terrorism in Syria while in reality it attacks infrastructure and commits massacres against civilians.
