International Coalition Bombings in Syria Leave at least 85 People Dead in 5 Days

CAIRO At least 85 people have been killed and dozens wounded in bombings carried out by the United States-led international coalition in the past five days in Syria, a British war monitoring group reported on Monday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that coalition aviation committed four attacks in which civilians, including children and women, were killed in the northern province of Aleppo and the northeastern province of al-Raqqa.

The NGO added that 27 civilians, including four children and eight women, were killed in airstrikes against villages west of al-Raqqa, capital of the Islamic State terror organization in Syria.

Some 58 people, including 39 civilians and 19 unidentified people, were killed after the international coalition bombing targeted a mosque on Thursday in the town of al-Jina, southwest of al-Atareb, west of Aleppo.

The US government confirmed that it carried out an attack in Syria against al-Qaeda, where it is believed that dozens of members of the extremist organization were killed.

Washington denied that the attack struck a mosque, pointing that it targeted an adjacent building.

Since the start of international coalition operations in September 2014, 890 civilians, including 212 children, have been killed, according to figures released by the SOHR in early March.
