Over the past few hours, the US-led International Coalition renewed aggression on the Syrian territories under the pretext of fighting the Islamic State, by shelling residential areas in al-Baghouz town in the Deir ez-Zor countryside, claiming the lives of eight civilians and causing damage local properties and houses.
Local sources told SANA that warplanes from the International Coalition fired several missiles on residential buildings in al-Baghouz town, claiming the lives of three women and five children, and injuring a number of civilians.
The sources added that the number of martyrs is likely to rise due to the critical condition of some of the injured.
This month, warplanes from the International Coalition committed four massacres, shelling the villages of al-Baghouz, al-Baghouz Fouqani and al-Sha’afa and Ksheik town in Deir ez-Zor’s southeastern countryside, claiming the lives of scores of civilians and injuring others, including women and children, in addition to causing huge material damage.
