Summary:
Between 12 and 14 people, including women and children, reportedly died in suspected US-led Coalition airstrikes on Raqqa City’s Naim roundabout area.
According to local reports, the Coalition targeted downtown Raqqa close to the al Naim roundabout where civilians were present, reportedly injuring “dozens” in addition those killed.

It is important to note discrepancies in the reports: whilst Shariqa Voice cited al Naim roundabout specifically, other sources said that the 12-14 killed were located in various neighbourhoods of Raqqa City, namely, “Al-Jumaili, Al Amassi, Al-Muroor, Al-Banshah, Al-Baidah, Al-Baida, Dawar Al-Naim and Dawar Al-Dalla”. A report by RFS media office then totalled the number killed at 23 in a 48 hour period, in the neighbourhoods listed by other sources who reported 14 civilians killed.
A local source speaking to Wagea pointed out that the raids caused “the deaths of at least 14 martyrs, all of them civilians, including children and women, in addition to significant damage to other homes and infrastructure in the city.”
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, noted that “several displaced people from outside Syria” were killed and further civilians suspected missing.
Both “air raids” from Coalition planes and “artillery shelling” contributed to the attack, local media said. All sources said the US-led Coalition was the culprit.
Civilians reported killed: 12-14, including two children and four women

September 13th 2017: (S1305)  قرية مظلوم Mazloum village, eastern Deir Ezzor governorate, Syria
Summary:
Up to seven civilians including two women and a girl died in an airstrike on a school sheltering displaced people in Mazloum village, eastern Deir Ezzor, according to local media. Though local sources were conflicted as to whether the Coaltion, Russia or the Syrian regime were to blame, the villagfe did appear to have been the target of a regime offensive. .
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights attributed the event to the Coalition, putting the death toll at at least seven with more injured – many, it said, in a serious condition. According to Deir Ezzor News, which didn’t identify the culprit, “Seven people died and a number more were wounded  as a result of the bombing of a school that housed displaced persons in Mazloum village in the eastern suburb of Deir Al-Azur.

The shelling targeted a school sheltering displaced people from the village of Al-Maraiya, killing seven civilians, including a girl and two women, and wounding several others. The number of martyrs is likely to increase due to the large number of wounded, and a significant shortage of medicines and medical services in the village, and there is a state of inability to treat a number of injuries”.
However, the majority of sources – Syria Press Center, SMO, Marsad al Hassaka and Euphrates Post – blamed Russia. According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, however, the regime carried out the attack. It put the death toll at six including a girl and two women.
Other sources added that dozens more civlians were injured in the event – though some did not identify the warplanes responsible.

September 14th 2017: (S1306) IDP camp near جديد عكيدات Jadid Akeidat, Eastern Deir Ezzor governorate, Syria
Summary:
A major civilian casualty incident allegedly took place at an IDP camp near Jadid Akeidat, Eastern Deir Ezzor countryside. Al Yaqeen reported about 100 displaced people were killed, mostly women and children, following an alleged aerial bombardment by the US-led Coalition at the camp (pictured). However this was contested – with Euphrates Post asserting that this news was in fact propaganda put out by the so-called Islamic State organization.
Activists quoted in the Syrian Mirror described a “massacre of about 120 civilians, including 100 children”, the death tolls were reiterated by Jisrtv – both blamed the US-led Coalition.
Activists shared concern “about the increase in the number due to the injuries of varying degrees of danger, in light of the weakness of medical services and the shortage of medicines and medical staff” with Shaam News, they also posted pictures which showed the wounded and “significant physical destruction in the targeted area’”. According to Shaam “Al-Assad and his Russian ally planes fly with the International Coalition aircraft to bomb areas under the control of the Islamic State in Deir al-Ghazal countryside, which are full of civilians. None of the planes have taken any notice of the lives of children, women and the elderly”.
Sadaalsham News did not identify a culprit, and referred only to “unknown military aircraft”, however it cited Step News Agency which quoted a source “close to Daesh”, which attributed blame to the US-led Coalition. @abazeid89 blamed both the US-led Coalition and Russia for the massacre, and posted a graphic photograph of a girl bloodied following the raid.
RFS Media Office said Moscow was responsible, asserting that “Russian warplanes” carried out the “horrific massacre” on the IDP camps in Deir Ezzor city’s countryside.
A later report from Euphrates Post revealed a significant discrepancy with reporting and said the incident did not happen. According to the Post the Al-A’amaq agency, the media wing of so-called Islamic State, “broadcast a video showing children victims’ bodies it claimed to have died as a result of the bombing of the international coalition aircraft on a camp near the village of Jadid Akeidat rural Deir Ezzor East”. However the Post “ found that the children martyrs were killed as a result of the bombing by Russian warplanes on the town of Khisham on Thursday morning and that the children’s pictures belong to the children of  Fadil Mohammed Al Khamis, who are displaced from the village of Al Bou Amro and they are in the town of Khasham”. Euphrates Post claimed “There is also no camp in the village of Jadid Akidat or near it. There were no raids on the town of Jadid Akeidat yesterday. What Al A’amaq broadcast were the victims or the massacres in al mayadeen, Bokdors and Khisham”
Amal Fadel Mohammed al Khamis and the child Walaa Mohammed al Khamis were killed in the town of Khasham, according to Euphrates Post, and reported by al a’amaq as having been killed in the alleged Jadid Akeidate camp.

September 14th 2017: (S1307) الميادين al Mayadin, Deir Ezzor governorate, Syria
Summary: A civilian casualty incident took place in Mayadin city, described by local sources as the “most important stronghold for Daesh in the region”. Reports were divided on who was responsible, the majority attributed the attack to Russian forces.
An initial report from Sharqiya Voice said a Russian warplane attacked the city, “shelling…civilian houses on the waterfront”, and killing five people and injuring more than 14. Reportedly, the Russian warplane earlier targeted the village of Bokros Tahtani which also resulted in civilian casualties. Other reports blamed a Russian missile launch.
Al Mayadeen Gathering in Exile documented 10 killed and 90 wounded following the strikes. The Russians supposedly fired seven cruise missiles in the raid and targeted “the post office and the convalescence center, Court Street and al Balou’m roundabout” according to the source. A later report from Euphrates Post noted the “National Hospital”, and the “Internet Lounge close to Fisherman’s Wharf” were targeted. It too blamed Russia.
The child Nermin Ahmed Al-Jaber and her brother Bashar Ahmad al-Jaber, were documented as two of the victims by Euphrates Post. Abou Ali wrote on Facebook that his uncle Al-Haji Salah Ibrahim Al-Alash was also killed in the attack. News of his death came after reports of “a large number of families…still under the rubble”, by @olay6663. Shbab then listed an additional four men  suspected killed:
Mawafaq Saleh Al Ali Al Hanan – Male
Hamed Al – Saleh Al Hamad Abu Bassam – Male
Saleh Khalif Al Arouk Abu Bandar – Male
Yasser Nizar Al Aswad – Male
According to Smart, “The Russian Defense Ministry announced Thursday that it was targeting south-east of the eastern city of Deir al-Zour with Caliber missiles from its submarines in the Mediterranean Sea – without specifying the locations”.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights initially reported “whether they belong to Russia or the the regime in still unknown” regarding the identity of aircraft. However a subsequent report said some sources alleged Russian responsibity whilst others blamed the Coalition. A third report on the incident by the Observatory alleged Russia conducted the strikes on Mayadeen.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights blamed the regime.
Later reports by Euphrates Post documented the death of Khader Sa’id al-Nizhan, reportedly he died after injuries sustained as a result of the airstrikes on Al Mayadeen. Khader Sa’id al-Nizhan was also documented killed in Bokros, however further correspondence with Euphrates Post confirmed the location as Al Mayadin.

Local media reported that five people were killed following airstrikes on Tabiyeh Shamieh, Deir Ezzor Governorate. Three of those who died were named in two separate reports from Euphrates Post:
Khalila Mohammed Al-Mutlaq [F]
Fatima Taha Aliawi al Obeid [F]
Muhammad al-Mutlaq Abu Jassim
(pictured)
Sources said the location of the incident was the “water crossing” at Tabiyeh Shamieh. According to the Syrian Observatory some civilians were “permanently disabled” following the strikes, “while others who were injured are still critical” with the death toll expected to rise. The Observatory referred to both Russian and Coalition planes at work in the vicinity, though did not specify who was to blame for the Tabiyeh Shamieh incident specifically.

There remains significant confusion in reporting. Euphrates Post and Sydusyria alleged Russian forces of being solely responsible; Step and Shaam News Network did not specify a culprit – Shaam claimed “all planes were bombing” whilst Step described a “bombardment of dozens of raids”.
Smart reported Russia had targeted the area in, conjunction with the Regime, The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights alleged the US-led Coalition responsible for the attack and resultant loss of civilian life.
A Smart report quoted a statement from the Russians, “The ministry said in a statement that the Veliky Novgorod and Kolpino submarines in the eastern part of the Mediterranean had targeted “locations” of the Islamic State in the south-eastern Deir es-Zour countryside (without specifying the location)”. It is unclear whether this statement relates to the incident at Tabiyeh Shamieh water crossing.
Shaam said that none of the planes( Russia, Coalition or the Regime) “have taken any notice of the lives of children, women and the elderly” as they bomb areas besieged by so-called Islamic State in Deir al-Ghazal countryside.

Summary:
Ten to 12 civilians, mostly children and women, were reported killed following alleged airstrikes on Khishham, 15 km southeast of Deir Ezzor. The majority of sources accused Russian warplanes of committing the offence. However both the Regime and the US-led Coalition were also mentioned in reporting.
Syrian Press Center reported that Russian warplanes used “cluster bombs around the house of Aref al-Humaidi”. According to local reports a number of houses were destroyed.
Qasioun said “A squadron of Russian fighters also shelled the villages and towns of Deir al-Zour in the east with dozens of airstrikes loaded with cluster bombs, the latest of which was in the village of Khasham”.
A number of sources, including Deirezzor and @ahraralmyadein, referred to “warplanes” but did not specify a culprit.
Fresh-syria blamed both the Regime and Russia, whilst Jbc was the only source that referred to the Coalition – Jbc pointed out that the Coalition and Russia were both “committing massacres” in Deir Ezzor countryside – neither were blamed for the Khisham incident specifically.
Later reports identified victims. @asharqsouri named the child, Ahmed al-Samih; Euphrates post listed nine child victims:

Between 11 and 15 civilians died, “dozens” were reportedly wounded, and the death toll included at least one women and five children. 
The Euphrates Post reported “Russian warplanes” targeted “the village of Jadid Bakara with three air raids targeting the perimeter of the telephone exchange in the village and another raid targeting al Jaraf [the valley]”.

Summary:
Local media reported that members of ISIS families died in airstrikes which hit homes in al A’shara/Al Hawa – though none of the reports said who was responsible for the incident. Moreover, there was some dispute over the location of the strike, and whether the homes struck belonged to civilians.
According to Euphrates Post, “Two  foreign families belonging to IS were killed as a result of the targeting of two houses by warplanes in Al-Hawi neighborhoods in the city of Al-A’shara.”

However, in the comments section underneath the post, a comment by Amin al Huweish reads: “By God, I don’t  know where you get your information from. First of all the strike was not on al Hawi Road. Secondly the raids were on civilian homes and until now no one is reported killed. I am from al A’shara and I know it inch by inch and neighbourhood by neighbourhood. Have some fear of God when spreading news.”
7al also said the strike was on the Al Hawi neighbourhood, resulting in the death of “two European families belonging to the organization [ISIS].”

Two children – Rahaf Hussein Ali Al-Ma’and and Wissam Hussein Ali Al Hassan – were named as injured in an airstrike.

Summary:
One female civilian named as Ms. Aisha Ahmed Al-Zaher “Umm Daham” (wife of Jarad Al-Hamdan), died in an alleged airstrike on the village of Sa’alu, according to local media. The US-led Coalition and Russia were both cited as culprit, amongst multiple references to unidentified aircraft.
According to Qasioun, the Coalition bombed Sa’alu as part of an aerial offensive that targeted multiple villages in the east of Deir Ezzor – Baqiras, Salu and Zubari. Qasioun noted “significant material damage” and alleged no civilian casualties.
Sdusyria was the only source that named Russia responsible, they reported “Russian warplanes and helicopter gunships launched dozens of air raids on the neighborhoods of the city of Deir Ghazur” including Sa’alu, one civilian casualty was documented in the report. @asharqasouri also reported the effects “limited to material damage”, and did not specify an actor.
A later report by Deirfree documented the death of one woman and injury of others, allegedly caused by the “spread of cluster bombs among civilian houses”, which caused “panic among the people”, they did not attribute blame. Euphrates Post subsequently named Ms. Aisha Ahmed Al-Zaher. The majority of sources did not identify the aircraft responsible, with the Coalition receiving one allegation, as did Russia.

September 28th 2017: (S1363) Near Halal market area of Al Mayadin, Deir Ezzor governorate, Syria
Summary:
At least seven civilians were reported killed and dozens more wounded in air and/or rocket/artillery strikes on Al Mayadin – though the death toll looked likely to rise with multiple reports saying that up to 21 other civilians were still trapped under the rubble.
It is currently unclear who was responsible for this incident, with sources pointing to both the US-led Coalition and to Russia. Moreover, a reference to “rocket fire” by one source means that SDF actions could not be ruled out.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, “warplanes that likely belong to the International Coalition carried out several strikes this morning on areas in the town of Al-Mayadin in the eastern suburb of Deir ez Zour, targeting the agricultural area of the city. So far there is no information about civilian casualties.”
The Step News Agency said that the Coalition carried out five strikes, killing a family of four.
According to Deir Free, a family of seven died in a Coalition strike – adding that the death toll was increasing.
Further sources, however, suggested a more significant casualty incident. Euphrates Post reported that “some 21 civilians, most of them women and children, have been trapped in the rubble since 2:30 pm as a result of air strikes targeting the city of Al-Mayadin near the agricultural bank and the general pharmacy in the public street towards the club (Mohammed Al-Shuaibi’s house) of the halal market.”
The source went on to list some of the names of civilians trapped under the rubble as: “Kanaan Shuaibi and his daughters, Luai Shuaibi and his wife, the daughter of Humaid Al Shuaibi, the daughter of Sufian Al Shuaibi, the family of Kanaan Al Shuaibi, the wife of Ammar Yasser Al Shuaibi.” It added that the equipment required to remove these people was unavailable, but that “the family of al Hassan al Shuaibi were all pulled out of the rubble, along with the children of Yasser and Othman Mohammed Al Shuaibi and their grandmother. They are all well and in good health.” DPN also reported that the al Shuaibi family were rescued from under their home after it was destroyed by “rocket fire”.
The Shaam News Network produced a similar report, saying that 21 civilians remained under the rubble after an attack by unidentified “warplanes”.
But Qasioun blamed Russia, saying that “activists reported that more than 30 air strikes carried out by Russian planes on the city and Al-Mayadeen which resulted in dozens of civilians killed and wounded.”
Deir Ezzor 24 said that other locations struck included “the bank and area behind the Shdoukhi building”.
Deir Free Radio later named Amer Mohammed Eid al-Darwish  as a victim.
Dania Abdel Razzaq al-Ta’is (displaced from Deir al-Zour) was documented as a victim in a later report by Euphrates Post. The Post also reported the child Dalia Ammar Yasser Shuaib  was still missing 48 hours after the search began, saying that her mother and her maternal grandfather in addition to ten others were still searching for her with limited equipment.
In subsequent reports, Euphrates Post confirmed the death of Fatima Abdel Moneim Al Hammadi and her pregnant daughter Dalia; and Mrs. Ola Sufian al-Shuaibi, wife of Hassan Yarub al-Shuaib; along with Jamal Abdul Wahab Ibrahim Hamad Al-Abdullah (Abu Khaled), who reportedly died later from wounds sustained in this incident.
