BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – Over the last 24 hours, the U.S. Coalition has conducted their largest attack in eastern Syria this year, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.
According to the SOHR report, the U.S. Coalition conducted more than 100 airstrikes over the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) positions inside the key town of Hajin.
The massive assault by the U.S. Coalition was conducted in conjunction with the Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) big push to capture Hajin and the Islamic State’s last positions east of the Euphrates River.
However, during this large-scale assault on the Islamic State forces, the U.S. Coalition reportedly killed eight civilians that were trapped behind the terrorist group’s lines in Hajin.
The U.S.’ recent air campaign in eastern Syria has proven costly as a large number of civilians have been reported dead as a result of their airstrikes in the Euphrates River Valley.
