Local sources reported that a family of five including three children were killed in alleged Coalition bombing in Al-Baghouz camp days several days before March 20th. The exact date they were killed remains unknown.
Ahmad Abd Al Rzzaq said: “My cousin Louay Abdel Wahab Al-Hamad Al-Ibrahim Al-Abdullah and his wife Nadra Abdul Aziz Al Thabet Al Khudur, and their three sons Khalil, Isra and Yaqoout” were killed – but said that they died in Hajin which would mean they were killed before December 15th 2018.
But all other sources said that the family died at Al Baghouz camp. Ahmad Abd Al Rzzaq noted that the family were refugees from Hajin, though @DeirEzzor24 said that they were from Al Mayadin city.
Airwars can’t confirm any more details at this time.
In July 2019 the Coalition announced that it had assessed this allegation of civilian harm to be non-credible. Their monthly civilian casualty report noted: “The allegation provided insufficient detail to identify a specific date, time, or location to search for corroborating Coalition action.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
The victims were named as:
