Airwars assessment

At least 10 and as many 12 civilians – which included women and children, all from one family – were reportedly killed in alleged Coalition airstrikes on Tal al Jayer village near the Syrian-Iraqi border.

Thawra Tahrir al Sham also reported that “many” others were injured. All seven sources which reported the strikes alleged that the Coalition was responsible.

In its own assessment, the US-led Coalition insisted that “After a review of available information it was assessed that no Coalition strikes were conducted in the geographical area that correspond to the report of civilian casualties.”

 

The local time of the incident is unknown.
