Airstrike kill at least 15 in eastern Syria

Airstrike kill at least 15 in eastern Syria

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said an air strike early on Wednesday killed at least 30 civilians and injured dozens more in a village held by Islamic State in eastern Syria.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the initial toll at 30 dead.

Two Syrian monitoring groups, Deir Ezzor 24 and Justice For Life, said an unidentified jet dropped a cluster bomb on the village of Doblan. Head of Deir Ezzor 24, Omar Abou Layla, said he expected the number of reported deaths to increase.

The top USA envoy for the global coalition against the Islamic State group met with members of a local council expected to administer Raqqa after IS forces are driven from the city.

At least 57 people were killed in an airstrike on an IS-run jail in the Euphrates River Valley on Monday.

The top US envoy for the worldwide coalition combatting the Islamic State group has met with members of a local council expected to administer the city of Raqqa in Syria following its capture from the militants.

It says it takes great pains to avoid harming or killing civilians and investigates all reports that it has done so. The facilities were divided into a special section for civilians and another for IS members.

Shamkhani said after the attack on the Syrian airfield, Iran and Russian Federation "officially called for sending an global fact-finding team to investigate the claims by America, however Washington prevented it in order to halt a revelation of its false accusations".

If Washington claims that the goal of USA military presence in Syria is the war on terror, then "steps taken by them should fully meet anti-terrorist tasks of the global community to fight against the Islamic State (terror group, outlawed in Russia) and groups affiliated with it", it said. Turkey views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdish insurgency raging in its southeast.
