Two civilians reportedly died and six were injured in an alleged Coalition airstrike on the Al Thani neighbourhood of Al Tabaqa.
The Smart news network reported: “A local source in al Tabaqa city (55 km west of Raqqa), said that the raids affected the second district [Al Thani neighbourhood], killing two civilians and wounding six others”. Smart blamed the Coalition.
Al Ahed also pointed towards the Coalition in a report which was fairly identical to Smarts, though it said that the news came from militant sources.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
