In Syria, residents say an airstrike killed at least 30 civilians, including women and children, in the Syrian province Deir ez-Zor on Monday. Reuters reports the airstrike was believed to be launched by the U.S.-led coalition. ISIS controls most of the province. U.S. Air Force Colonel John Dorrian said the coalition had carried out strikes around the town where multiple homes were reportedly destroyed, but he said he could not “confirm the veracity of allegations of civilian casualties.” The journalistic monitoring group Airwars says nine civilians were reportedly killed by U.S.-led coalition airstrikes on Thursday and Friday in Raqqa.
