A single source reported that three civilians were killed after an air raid targeted the village of al Baghouz.
Sound and Picture stated that the three civilians were killed after “air strikes from a combat aircraft coming from the Iraqi side” struck the village in the countryside of Abu Kamal.
While the source was alone in saying this, several other reports made mention of Coalition airstrikes on al Baghouz in which “several members of Daesh were killed”. Baladi News said that ‘dozens’ of ISIS fighters were injured.
In January 2019, the Coalition announced that it had classed the event as non credible due to a lack of available evidence of civilian harm: “After a review of available information and strike video it was assessed that there is insufficient evidence to find civilians were harmed in this strike.”
The incident was first reported on May 28, 2018 at 11:00 am by .
