26 civilians killed in new massacre by US-led coalition in Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor, SANA – Warplanes of the US-led international coalition carried out a new massacre in the town of Hajin, 110 km  to the east of Deir Ezzor City.

Local sources told SANA that over the past few hours, warplanes of the US-led coalition intensified their aggression against Hajin town as they targeted  civilians’ houses with tens of sorties claiming the lives of at least 26 civilians, some of them women and children, in addition to inuring scores and causing huge damage to the houses.

The sources added that the number of martyrs is likely to rise due to the continued sorties and the difficulty in pulling the wounded out of the rubble, in addition to the critical health condition of many of them.

The sources noted that the coalition shells the civilians’ houses in the town intentionally under the pretext of targeting Daesh (ISIS) terrorists, indicating that the continued aggression launched by the coalition has displaced hundreds of civilians whose houses have been destroyed.
