US-led coalitions attack on Raqqa leaves 17 dead

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - At least 17 people, including children and women, have reportedly lost their lives in the latest airstrikes carried out by the US-led coalition purportedly Daesh on the northern Syrian city of Raqqah.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Sunday that five children and four women were among the victims.

An unspecified number of people were also wounded in the US-led aerial attacks, according to the report.

The US-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh targets inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.

The military alliance has repeatedly been accused of targeting and killing civilians. It has also been largely incapable of fulfilling its declared aim of destroying Daesh.

The city of Raqqah, which lies on the northern bank of the Euphrates River, was overrun by Daesh terrorists in March 2013, and proclaimed the center for most of the Takfiris’ administrative and control tasks the next year.

Syria has been fighting different foreign-sponsored militant and terrorist groups since March 2011.

Damascus repeatedly urged the United Nations to take on its responsibilities concerning the establishment of international peace and security to put an end to the crimes against Syrians by the US-led coalition.
