A woman and her two children were reported killed in an alleged Coalition airstrike on Dayr ez Zawr city.
Reuters cited the Syrian Observatory as reporting that “In Deir al-Zor city, another air strike overnight killed a woman and two of her children.”
In comments relating to the previous incident, an anonymous US official told AP that “Radar shows Russian bombers making seven passes over the city of Deir el-Zour dropping munitions.”
In their January 2020 civilian casualty report, the US-led Coalition assessed reports that they were responsible for civilian harm in this strike as “non-credible”, stating that no Coalition actions were conducted in the geographical area at that time.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
