THE Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that more than two hundred civilians lost their lives as the US-led coalition carried out airstrikes on Syria’s troubled eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr in November.

As many as 206 civilians were killed in the air raids last month. There were 77 people under the age of 18 among the fatalities in addition to 57 female victims.`

The US-led air raids also resulted in the injury of hundreds of civilians, some of whom suffered permanent disabilities and had to have their limbs amputated. At least 30 civilians have been killed in US-led airstrikes against the town of al-Shaafah in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.

Local sources told Syria’s official news agency, SANA, last Friday that US-led coalition fighter jets had targeted residential buildings in al-Shaafah town of Dayr al-Zawr province, leaving at least 30 people dead.
