43 civilians have been killed as a result of US-led coalition airstrikes in the city of Raqqa, the Syrian state-run news agency SANA reported on Saturday.

“Identical local and media sources said that the warplanes of the “Coalition” bombarded al-Jamili Building in Raqqa, killing 43 civilians, most of them are either children or women, in addition to injuring others and demolishing the six-floor building,” SANA’s article reads.

The incident allegedly took place on Friday.

According to the agency, 108 civilians were killed in May as a result of airstrikes carried out by the US-led coalition in the provinces of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor.

    Enough is enough! It is well past time for the Syrian and Russian air defenses to start shooting down these murderers. What the hell are they waiting for? Aren’t the lives of the Syrian people as important as those in Germany, Belgium, France, England, etc. after terrorist attacks?

  • Russell A Wilson

    Shooting down these murders will not solve anything just esculate to a direct confrontation between Russia and the US. Only constant news of this type presented to the public across the globe will cause the US-coalition to collaspe. Seems cold hearted to let this continue but the alternative is WWIII then how many civilian losses will there be?

      I’d say more or less the same. The USraelis don’t seem to have a clear policy different from keeping the country in chaos. It won’t change the outcome, but it will inflict Syria a much longer period of death and destruction. That’s enough said on the real face of the defenders of democracy.

    This is normal. Were fall bombs, die everybody. I never blamed russians, i will not blame americans. What is problem, USA blames other countries in UNO, and Russia does not make any pressure. That is weakness. Nobody will give plus point to Russia, for it´s fair handling.

    Enough with the hypocrisy. There is no other way to fight ISIS. All parties should try to minimize the collateral damage and continue until ISIS is eliminated.
