12 civilians were killed, including a number of women and children, and several people injured following an alleged Coalition strike, according to local reports.
A number of outlets, including Step News Agency, Sada al Sham and Al Jisr TV reported that 11 civilians were killed in the attack, though this figure appeared to originated from ISIL-controlled Al A’amaq Agency, which also fingered the Coalition. Al Jisr TV reported that 2 women and 1 child were among the dead. Sada al Sham referred to “several” wounded.
The Syrian Observatory cited “warplanes believed to be from the international alliance” and referenced “the death of several people from the same family.” Other outlets, including Zaitoun Mag, noted the attack came just two days after a similar bombing in Al Ghazli, Raqqa governorate.
LCCSY put the death toll at 12 and also blamed the Coalition.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
