US-led Coalition Warplanes Bomb Civilian Targets In Euphrates Valley – Reports

Warplanes of the US-led coalition carried out a series of airstrikes on civilian buildings inside the town of al-Susah in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside killing and injuring many civilians, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on October 18.

“Yes, it happened today, coalition aircraft are constantly bombing the homes of innocent civilians, thereby helping the Daesh [ISIS] militants,” a Syrian military source told the Russian news agency Sputnik confirming the report.

This was not the first time when the Damascus government accused the US-led coalition of attacking civilians during its military operation against ISIS in the Euphrates Valley. Last week, Syrian sources said that coalition warplanes dropped internationally forbidden white phosphorous bombs on civilian areas within the town of Hajin, north of al-Susah.

The US-led coalition has stepped up its airstrikes on remaining ISIS positions in the Euphrates Valley since the beginning of this month to support its proxies from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which are struggling to advance on the ground. However, this led to several problems, including a friendly-fire incident, in which 6 US-backed fighters were killed.

    The US always targets civilians as a first option, they don’t shoot back.
    If you look at some of Americas heroes, like Wyatt Earp, he used to wait outside saloons, and shoot drunk people in the back as they left the saloon.
    Cowardly killing is as American as apple pie, which isn’t an American invention, so I will rephrase.
    Cowardly killing is as American as BS.

      You mummy told You…

  • northerntruthseeker .

    Finally someone admits that the US has been attacking Syrian civilians….. This is absolutely fact, and exactly what the US has been doing all along as part of the criminal genocidal program of “ethnic cleansing”.

    • Jens Holm

      They have “admittet” that for many years.

      1) You construct a lie whicg fx can be confirmed here in several artickles and next 2) You even blame them for it.

      You really keep Your level well like several others here.

        Raqqa was left as rubble, even some US 155mm tubes where burnt out.
        Why no reconstruction money from the coalition, because this is Syria. :(

        Jens, constant lieing is destroying you from inside. You may not notice it yet, but it might be too late when you do. Your kind think that 30 shekels worth it – grave mistake. I feel sorry for you.

    Of course SANA says it was civilians who died, but the real question is how would they know what those bombs hit inside ISIS controlled territory? Furthermore, that is an ISIS controlled town, it’s loaded with ISIS supporters. SANA is obviously trying to twist the narrative.

    • Tudor Miron

      Smaugy, let me ask you one seemingly unrelated question – who died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945?

      • Smaug

        You did.

        • Tudor Miron

          Smaugy, that was a simple question. What triggered your childish response?

          • Smaug

            You asked an irrelevant question, you got an irrelevant answer. Now the only advice I will give before muting you is that you should talk down to people like this in person also. So that someone would do the world a favor a rip your eyes out of their sockets.

          • Tudor Miron

            Smaugy, I see that you’re a little bit irritated. Your anger reveals your fear. Your desire that someone (you obviously afraid to try it yourself) rips my eyes out of their sockets reveals sadistic inclinations. Do you like torturing people? Does it excite you?
            Your masters (you don’t even realize who you work for) are proud of you – making humans to loose their humanity and turn into consuming animals is their goal. Such people are perfect slaves and fit well in their view of our world.

            Lol get rekt dork.

            Even though its uner isis “control” its still syria…people talk.

            Nice straw man there.

    Another silly article. Russia and Syria also bomb civilian buildings that the rebels. extremists and ISIS were using for various purposes. Those two don’t really know if any of the civilians in those are their supporters or being used to provide a disguise of normalcy and probably don’t give a shit one way or another.
