US-led Coalition Airstrikes Kill Scores Of Civilians Fleeing ISIS In Euphrates Valley

Click to see full-size image, By the Official Twitter account of the International Coalition for Operation Inherent Resolve.

On January 18, US-led coalition warplanes killed more than 20 civilians who were trying to flee the ISIS-held town of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani in the middle Euphrates River Valley, according to several Syrian sources.

“The number of victims is expected to raise as many wounded are in critical condition,” a reporter of the Deir Ezzor 24 blog said.

Local activists revealed that the victims, most of them were women and children, had managed to escape from al-Baghuz al-Fawqani and reached a checkpoint of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). However, the US-backed group refused to let them pass and coalition warplanes targeted them on their way back to the town.

The US-led coalition and the SDF have not commented on these reports about the massacre in al-Susah so far. Usually, the coalition addresses such incidents within a few months claiming that there were no civilian casualties or their number was very low.

This was not the first time the US-led coalition committed a massacre in the Euphrates Valley. According to a recent report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), 373 civilians have been killed by coalition forces since last September.

    US- Coalition KILLING Women & Children as USUAL

  • Vince Dhimos

    The article neglects to mention that this town is located in Deir Ezzor, where the US coalition has chalked up the most “accidental” killings of civilians and Syrian troops. Once under Obama, the US “accidentally” killed about 80 troops and once under Trump, another smaller group, also “by accident.” (Do you still believe the fairly tale that presidents make their OWN decisions? Seriously?)
    Why here? Because this is the home of a US base. Why a base here?
    Deir Ezzor is home to the Omar deposit, richest oil field in Syria. I am anxiously awaiting the day when S-300s shoot down a US fighter jet here. It is way past due.

      And I am genuinely hoping that it never happens. It’s not worth dying for israhell. I know you would’t agree but it doesn’t matter.

    • seawolf

      That will never happen, Russians will never shoot down US fighter jets !!!

      • Carne João Pasta

        Syrian military can, however

      • jako

        For reason…
        Still let us not forget that those are Russian radars (and whole air defense coordination system) that permits old Russian missiles (that Syria uses)against Israel to perform so well.
        Maybe it is about time that Syria try them against “coalition forces” also…

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      they are not shooting down the israeli planes they bomb them at will and you expected them to shot down american planes?

    • Rob

      This is 5th generation war of US, UK and of France against the whole world. This is the rule of this war that they don’t let even children and women without slaughtering them.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Just dehumanized cowards with no regard to humanity or even basic decency.

      • d’Artagnan

        US, Israel, Saudis etc bomb civilians to break resistance, the opposite normally happens.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Sad reality is that the average Americunt has been totally dehumanized by the Zionist animals on two legs. Americunts are spiteful cowards who start wars, lose them and then resort to killing unarmed civilians. This is the pathetic Americunt “history” from Wounded Knee to My Lai. Murder at home and abroad.

    • d’Artagnan

      Syrian airspace should be cleared of all illegal aircraft operations, those are NATO, US and Israeli. It is time to give them a warning, declare no fly zone and then start shooting them down.

  • Radom Persey

    This recklessness will cost them one day.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      it is not recklessness it is intentional crimes they committing, in order to keep the civilians under isis control to be used as buffer for them.

      • You can call me Al

        It is a good point that Greek.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          is it kind of obvious?

    • d’Artagnan

      already is, as there is growing anger at the indiscriminate bombings of civilians by americans.

  • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

    The USA and its warmongering generals haven’t answered about their crimes against humanity since WW II …untill they do they will continue slaughtering civilians in every corner of the world.
    Isramerica, the bully of the world that nobody has the balls to stop.

    • SEAN THOMAS

      Losing is the only crime in war.

    • Radom Persey

      These superpowers are really a bunch of bullies that need a beat down. They make their money off of exploiting the weakest and most vulnerable people in the world.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        it is the amerijew way. defective DNA never changes.

        • jorge

          Social DNA, or society’s #education#, it’s the cardinal, it’s a question of to be or not to be a slave of that kind of “formation”. By the way, it’s tipical of a country conquered by the force, on a greek classic example, Sparta.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I wouldn’t know about that kid. Where I been born and call my mother land it is probably the only place on earth never been conquered by any one and who ever come to our lands, we always left one or two alive depending on our mood at the time to go back and tell the rest what happened to them.

          • jorge

            Interesting, what was the region?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            it is called Mani peninsula on the map, we call it our kingdom.

          • jorge

            So, there was no helots in Mani?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            no they was no helots in Mani, just Maniots. People confuse many things due to several factors first because the alleged history you all know is either been written by western so called scholars or as it happens with 99% of the modern populations their teacher is holywood.

            Helots (tax slaves) been invented by the Spartans, that instead of having slaves, they had people just like you to believe they are free but for their freedom they pay Spartans, taxes. In return Spartans will protect them and most of the times fight their wars. End of the lesson.

          • jorge

            Thanks for the lesson about Mani, and I don’t pay direct taxes, but as we have to buy somethings, sometimes, I confess that I pay the indirect taxes of the bought goods.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            ok buying goods for yourself it is something unavoidable to pay their taxes on them. But paying income tax is what tax slaves do and uneducated employees of the system. And one thing I am talking with you when I respond to you not about you as I dont know who you are or what you do in life.

            I also pay taxes when I buy smoke or fuel. Where I am now we grow our own food and most of our meat comes from hunting. We also produce our own moonshine, the best in the world, I may add, or so I been told from every one who try it and I have a lot of guests coming and going from all over europe and the states. I dont drink alcohol.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Essentially its the Protection Racket system :)

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            back then was not so much protection racket. Spartans was not big in numbers, so they could not conquer any lands and hold them. So they established the helots. The spartans was the army protecting the lands the helots was the food suppliers. A good arrangement back then.

      Russia and Iran can’t attack “coalition forces” without direct support of Chinese army.
      When you see China involved directly ….please let us know.
      In the meantime stop measuring their “balls”…
      Russia is not up to the task to challenge NATO “coalition forces” even with total Iranian commitment !

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        What the f@k are you rambling on pal ?

        What’s what I wrote about the USA got to do with China and Russia and Iran and attacking NATO ?
        Are you sure you meant to post this to me or was it meant for somebody else?

        For the record I dont think you have the slightest clue anyway.
        NATO has no chance against the ‘others’ .
        NATO most likely won’t even have the European Union’s support.
        I can’t see Italy or Greece or Hungary backing a NATO agression act against Russo-China. And Germany and France have their own problems too…
        NATO is the USA and the UK. The rest of the members are just spectators.

        • jako

          I can just use you own words
          “What the f@k are you rambling on pal ?”
          ( not to waste my time to type )
          after reading your nonsense comment…..
          you are hardly worthy any answer ….

          I’m sick and tired of bigmouth Anglo-Saxon lecturing

            You are the idiots that faught , never wan a war ,and still full of SHIT !!!Yankee idiots go home !!Where is the hubris coming from ,JAKO ,take your medications !

        COALITION ,OR GENOCIDAL PSYCOPHATES WORKING FOR ISRAEL !!!THEY SHOULD BE DESTROYED ASAP !JAKO.YOU ARE A JACK ASS !

        • jako

          So destroy them than, you pathetic big-mouthed prick!
          Nobody is stopping you.
          You are confusing WW3 with video games.
          If Westerners like you want to fight against “GENOCIDAL PSYCOPHATES” than you should do it yourself and not to fight to the last Russian to achieve something!

  • Tony B.

    The obvious Coalition objective is to genocide all Syrians east of the river, emptying the land for greater Israhell and the pipeline they want to service Europe’s needs.

  • SurfshackTito (TheSecular)

    I await the day of the Liberation of the US from Zionism.
    It may not happen, but I want people to at least make an attempt.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      the only way for this to happen is only if the federal government is dissolved and 52 new countries are born. You think, this will happen in your life time?

      • SurfshackTito (TheSecular)

        Very Doubtful.
        Most of the people are uninformed and don’t really care about the situation domestically.

    • Tommy Jensen

      We are NOT going to make ANY attempts. We are having a good life where we are. If you dont like your life and America, YOU should make YOUR attempt first.

      • SurfshackTito (TheSecular)

        My life is as good as it is brudda.
        The World isn’t perfect. And so as America. Life goes on and the population will continue to give their contributions to the world.
        I have hopes that change will come in some shape or form without the use of weapons. Cause as we’ve seen in The Middle East it doesn’t really work.

      • SurfshackTito (TheSecular)

        On second thought.
        You did praise the coalition efforts in Syria. Never mind.

        SouthFront isn’t for you man. No hard feelings.

  • The Americans will have the same success in Afghanistan as in Vietnam. Years ago the Soviet Union made exactly the same mistake. Many people were killed and it finally pulled out. History repeats itself. We know Afghanistan. We know that Afghanistan will never submit to foreign armies.”

      American idiots ,are donkeys that make war ,for the military industrial complex,who makes trilliones ,out of endless wars ,and hope his troops will come home in bags ,so they will not have to take care of them !This is 100% true and disgusting !Veterans home and suicide !!Bloody bastard of nation of CRIMINALS !

      • Respect your opinion my man.
        The us are indeed pigs.

  • SFC Steven M Barry USA RET

    USAF has a most excellent history of murdering civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure. Not much good at anything else. In SF we used to call them the Air Farce.

  • Smaug

    This is not the first time you republished whatever article suits your anti-US agenda, South Front. Apparently to you everyone’s a civilian when America is fighting them, even if they have black flags.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    the SOHR underestimate US civilian casualties all the time, he’s the last person we should ever believe, if he says 373 I instantly double it no matter what, and in the instance of the Hakin campaign I’m actually going to triple it, if he says 373 I think it most really be more like 1120. Fat little lying bastard.

    It is about time that SAA “accidentally” shoots down “coalition” warplane.
