Fifteen or more civilians reportedly died in an alleged Coalition night time strike on the Al Hazwana neighbourhood of Manbij, according to multiple reports.
Manbij Mother of all the World said the ‘terrible massacre’ took place near the al Karama school.
The Syrian Observatory issued an urgent call to the Coalition and its allies: “We in the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights call upon the international Coalition to be very careful in the military operation of Manbij, due to the presence of tens of thousands of civilians inside Manbij city, which –iif it continues to be targeted by inaccurate air and missile strikes– will cause tens of new massacres against civilians, of whom 104 at least were already killed [by the Coalition], including 45 children and citizen women.”
The local time of the incident is unknown.
