Syrian official news agency SANA reported on Monday that more than 50 civilians, including women and children, had been killed as a result of a US-led coalition airstrike on Baghouz.
Last Thursday, warplanes of the US-led coalition shelled gatherings of civilians with white phosphorous in the surroundings of Baghouz near the Syrian-Iraqi borders, claiming the lives of a number of citizens, mostly women and children.
The US-led coalition and the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is supported by Washington, claim that they are fighting against Daesh militants in the Arab country and that Baghouz, which is the last pocket of territory controlled by remnants of the terror group, is constantly under their fire and expected to be liberated soon.
The flashpoint town is located in the eastern Euphrates River region.
