More civilians killed in US airstrikes on residential areas in Deir Ezzur

More civilians killed in US airstrikes on residential areas in Deir Ezzur
World  -  Several more people were killed and many more wounded in the US-led coalition air raids on a civilian neighborhood in Southeastern Deir Ezzur.

The number of civilians killed in the US airstrikes on people's houses near the town of al-Takihi in the outskirts of the city of al-Basireh in Southeastern Deir Ezzur has reached 15 and many more have been injured, Deir Ezzur 24 news website reported.

It noted that the airstrikes came as the US-led coalition and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were allegedly chasing an ISIL commander in the region.

Tensions have been on rise between the civilians and the US forces and SDF in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

In a relevant development earlier this month, the SDF had sent a new military convoy to Deir Ezzur from Hasaka to suppress the popular uprisings there as people's protests against the SDF have increased, sources said.

Local sources in Deir Ezzur reported that the residents of the city of al-Basireh in Deir Ezzur held a public strike against the SDF's mistreatment of the people in Deir Ezzur.

The sources noted that the popular uprisings in Deir Ezzur heightened after the SDF conducted an armed robbery by using military vehicles.

The SDF sent a military convoy comprising 20 military vehicles and so-called anti-riot forces to crush the people in al-Basireh city.

Hasaka and Deir Ezzur provinces have been the scenes of large-scale protests over recent years concurrent with intensified tensions in SDF-controlled areas.
