“472 civilians killed in 2 provinces in past month”

Reports from Syria say US-led coalition air strikes killed over 470 civilians in two provinces over the past month. The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says over 220 civilians, including 84 children were killed in the Daesh-held province of Dayr al-Zawr.

According to the UK-based group, 250 others, including over 50 children, also lost their lives in Raqqah province, where the battle against ISIL still continues. The group says the death toll has more than doubled compared with the previous month.

The overall civilian toll is said to stand at nearly two-thousand, some eight-hundred of them women and children. The latest report by the US-led coalition has put the number of civilians unintentionally killed at over 480 in Iraq and Syria.
