A so-called monitoring group says at least eight civilians have lost their lives when the US-led coalition purportedly fighting Daesh in Syria carried out an airstrike near the country’s Daesh-held northern city of al-Raqqah.

The strike targeted the village of Suwaydiyah al-Kabirah, which lies northeast of al-Thawrah City and approximately 55 kilometers west of the provincial capital city of al-Raqqah, on Friday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The Observatory said there were five women and children among the deceased, noting that the death toll could rise as some of those injured in the aerial attack are in critical condition.

Raqqah, on the northern bank of the Euphrates River, was overrun by the Takfiri terrorists in March 2013, and was proclaimed the center for most of the terrorists’ administrative and control tasks the next year.

The attack is not the first US-led airstrike that leads to civilian casualties.

Nearly twenty civilians were killed on December 8, 2016, when a US-led strike targeted al-Msheirfeh region north of Raqqah. Several people also sustained injuries in the blitz.
