BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The U.S. Coalition has stepped up their attacks against the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in rural Deir Ezzor this week, despite accusations by the Syrian government and local monitors of their bombs killing scores of civilians.
According to local reports, the U.S. Coalition heavily bombarded the Daesh-held towns of Al-Shafah and Hajin, today, inflicting heavy damage on the terrorist group’s defenses.
The U.S airstrikes come just hours after the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) claimed that their bombs killed scores of civilians in the Euphrates River Valley region of Deir Ezzor.
Due to Daesh’s recent expansion towards the Iraqi border, the U.S. Coalition has intensified their strikes against the terrorist forces in a bid to minimize the group’s ability to wage attacks.
