US Airstrikes Kill 26 Civilians In Syria

At least 26 civilians have been killed, following airstrikes, by US-led coalition jets, in Syria.

At least 26 civilians, including children, have been killed in the north-east of Syria by air strikes possibly carried out by the US-led coalition, a monitoring group said.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the village of al-Khan, near al-Hawl in Hasakah province, was hit. A US spokesman in Iraq said the reports would be looked into.

Separately, the Syrian government said three soldiers were killed in a strike.

The Syrian foreign ministry said coalition jets fired missiles at an army camp in Deir al-Zour province, which is largely controlled by the Islamic State, and condemned what it called an act of “flagrant aggression”.

However the US military insisted that the coalition had carried out no strikes in the area near the camp.
