According to reports up to 16 civilians including 10 members of a family died in Ain al A’rouss “following Coalition raids.” One adult male civilian victim – the head of the family – was named by VDC as Faeour al Abo.
According to Shaam News, Daesh targets had been struck in the town: “International coalition aircraft attacked the Al Bazza’i building in the town of Ain Al A’rouss near Tal Abyad, where elements of IS were holed up inside. This led to the destruction of the building and the killing of all those who were inside.”
Another source noted: “Baladi News’s reporter confirmed that ten people including women and children were killed in the family of Mr. Fa’our Al I’bbo, when the coalition bombed their home in Ain Al A’rouss. The coalition also bombed three other houses belonging to Ismail Al I’bbo, and Hamad Mahmoud Juma’a al Hawi, which led to the displacement of the villagers to the neighboring villages.”
In a later report the Syrian Network placed the final death toll at 16, who it said died in two separate events. “First incident: Fixed-wing international coalition forces war-planes fired missiles that targeted Ein Al Arous village which resulted in the killing of 11 individuals including two children and five women
