According to reports by the Syria Satellite Channel, 17 people have been killed due to two airstrikes conducted by the US-led coalition against the villages Hidaj and Hamadi in the south of the Al-Hasakah region. Previously, state TV had reported that 8 people were killed during the incident.

Previously this month, 25 civilians were killed and over 100 injured by US-led airstrikes, which targeted the village al-Fadel near the town of al-Shaddadi, also in the Al-Hasakah region.

The following day, the Syrian Foreign Ministry submitted a letter of complaint to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the UNSC president in wake of the airstrikes.

The US-led coalition, consisting of over 70 countries, is conducting military operations against Daesh in Syria and Iraq.

The coalition’s strikes in Iraq are conducted in cooperation with Iraqi officials, but operations in Syria are not authorized by the government of President Bashar Assad or the United Nations Security Council.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Does the casualty number includes ISIS fighters?
