Hundreds of civilians have been killed in continued airstrikes by air forces of the US-led anti-ISIS coalition on civilian targets in Raqqa province. The airstrikes targeted a school housing displaced people in the town of Mansoura west of Raqqa city on March 21.
The US-led coalition has carried out a series of air raids on Raqqa province claiming the lives of hundreds of civilians. Survivors now have no safe place to go to and are unable to rescue or count the victims of these airstrikes.
The Syrian Coalition is increasingly concerned about civilian deaths in the war on terrorism. The Coalition calls on the US-led coalition forces to make serious efforts to avoid civilian casualties and to stop targeting residential areas under whatever pretext. A serious investigation must be conducted into these attacks amounting to war crimes to ensure they are not repeated it and to hold those responsible accountable, including those who are providing misleading information for ground targets to the forces of the US-led anti-ISIS coalition.
