The Syrian News Network reported Coalition strikes on the village of Huwaij to the west of Al Hassakah. Step News also reported that “Coalition aircraft targets ISIS-run center in the village of Al-Huwaij and for information on the size of the losses yet.”

It was claimed in an associated SNN website comment by Suleyman Suleyman that “Coalition planes launched raids on al Huwaij village in western Hassaka? Why don’t you mention that seven civilians were martyred in the village, five children, their mother and a woman visiting them. Or is that not allowed because the planes were American and Gulf ones?”
No additional details are presently known regarding this claim.
In its January 2020 civilian casualty report, the US-led Coalition assessed this event to be non credible, saying there was insufficient information to make a determination.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
