One civilian male was killed in alleged Coalition airstrikes on Al Mayadin, local sources reported.
Of the three sources who documented the airstrike, only Jisr TV alleged that the Coalition was responsible, noting that “In the eastern countryside.. International coalition fighter jets launched air strikes on the outskirts of the Mayadeen, killing a civilian.”
The other known sources only mentioned unspecified ‘raids’ on the city, though both reported the civilian fatality.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
