An unspecified number of civilians was reported killed and injured during alleged Coalition airstrikes in support of heavy ground fighting in Manbij.

According to blogger Hathifa al Yaman al Majd “Warplanes last night targeted Al Jilawi neighbourhood behind al Hawatma neighbourhood, on Jarablos road. Missiles hit civilian houses and destroyed seven houses in the area, resulting in many deaths and injuries among civilians. We don’t know the names of the targeted houses yet nor the names of the civilians as it’s very difficult to reach the area.”
