Several civilians were killed and injured in alleged Coalition airstrikes on al Soussa, local media claimed.
According to Euphrates Post, “The daughter of Jassem al-Aziz was injured as a result of air strikes targeting one of the orchards in the town of al Soussa yesterday [January 10th].” Euphrates Post didn’t identify the culprit, though Qasioun pointed to the Coalition.
Damascus News Network reported that “a number of civilians were martyred and wounded by a US-led International Alliance aircraft in strikes on the village of al-Sousse in the eastern suburb of Deir al-Zour.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.

US-led Coalition Assessment:
Original strike reports
On January 9th-10th, the Coalition reported: “Near Abu Kamal, 26 strikes engaged 25 ISIS tactical units and destroyed three ISIS vehicles, a fighting position and a logistics center.”
"Wednesday 10 January – a Reaper hit three terrorist targets in eastern Syria, whilst Tornados destroyed an armed truck…The following day [January 10th], another Reaper worked closely with coalition surveillance aircraft and fast jets in a series of strikes in support of the SDF advance. Our aircraft supported coalition air attacks on a Daesh-held building and a mortar position, and conducted three attacks with its own Hellfire missiles, destroying an armed truck parked under cover of a vehicle shelter, and hitting two groups of terrorists on foot. A flight of Tornado GR4s also took part in this operation, and targeted an armed truck positioned within a compound; the use of a Brimstone missile allowed the vehicle to be destroyed without posing a risk to nearby buildings."
