Airwars assessment

One named civilian died in an alleged Coalition airstrike on a home which had reportedly been seized by ISIS and was being used as a prison, local sources reported.

Sources said that the home of Farouq Al-Mashouh was being used as an ISIS prison. Euphrates Post and SHRC named Laith Allawi al-Jabr, one of the detainees, as killed in the strike. Other sources said civilians were also wounded.

According to Deir Ezzor 24, “the warplanes raided the town of Mayadin in the eastern suburb of Deir al-Azur. The first raid targeted the house of Farouk al-Mashouh, known as the former mufti’s house, which had been turned into a prison. This led to the martyrdom of a number of prisoners, including the martyr Laith Allawi al-Jabr”.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that “two civilians were killed when International Coalition warplanes missiles fired on al Mayadeen city in Deir Ez-Zour governorate eastern suburbs on July 28, 2017.”

RFS Media Office said that “unknown planes” carried out the strike.
