The death toll from airstrikes by the international anti-ISIS coalition on the town of Mansoura west of Raqqa has risen to over 180, activists said. Warplanes of the international coalition at dawn on Tuesday bombed a school housing hundreds of internally displaced people.
The majority of the people who sought shelter in the school fled their homes in eastern rural Aleppo and eastern rural Homs as regime forces and their allied-foreign militias advanced on these areas, especially on the towns of Khafsa, Deir Hafir, and Tadmur.
Residents are struggling to dig bodies of the victims from under the rubble of the bombed school as whole families are still buried under the rubble.
Activists said the death toll is likely to rise further as rescue and search operations continue.
Aircraft of the international anti-ISIS coalition committed another massacre against civilians in the town of Tabqa west of Raqqa when residential areas in the town were hit on Wednesday. At least 20 civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the airstrikes.
Activists said that all field hospitals in the area were put out of service as a result of the airstrikes. Two more civilians were killed in airstrikes on the village of Jadida east of Raqqa while 10 more were wounded in similar attacks on the village of Sabkha.
Despite the high number of civilian casualties, the international anti-ISIS coalition continues to hit ISIS-held areas in the provinces of Aleppo and Raqqa. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department + Agencies)
