US-led coalition warplane strikes Syria’s Raqqah


A warplane belonging to the U.S.-led coalition reportedly struck a target near Syria’s Daesh-held city of Raqqah on Wednesday, killing 10 civilians and injuring another 13, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

Hamza al-Hassan, a local activist, told Anadolu Agency that a civilian settlement in Raqqah’s Al-Mansura district -- located some 20 kilometers (12 miles) west of Raqqah city -- had been targeted by the coalition warplane.

 

"Ten civilians, including women and children, were killed in the airstrike while another 13 were wounded," he said.

 

"Five homes in the area were completely destroyed, and a number of others were badly damaged," he added.

 

A similar airstrike on Monday by U.S.-led coalition warplanes in Raqqah left 16 civilians dead.
