According to the Hassakah Youth Movement, “International Coalition planes have carried out several raids along the front lines south west of Al Hawl and targets in the village of Al Hazim. There are reports of the martyrdom of several civilians.“
Shaam News also reported that Coalition airstrikes in support of Kurdish forces “led to the deaths of a number of civilian martyrs in Al Hazim.”
In their February 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 the allegation provided insufficient information on the timing and location of the strike to make a determination.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
