BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – As many as 16 people were killed by the U.S. Coalition, Wednesday, after a fighter jet carried out an indiscriminate airstrike over the Al-Raqqa Governorate village of Al-Barouda, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

Among the 16 people killed by the U.S. airstrike in Al-Barouda was the entire Al-Hajj family, which included five children.
