We in the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights call upon the international coalition to be very careful in the military operation of Manbij, due to the presence of tens of thousands of civilians inside Manbij city, which –in case it was targeted by inaccurate air and missile strikes– will cause tens of new massacres against civilians, of whom 104 at least were killed, including 45 children and citizen women, also we renew our condemnation of the targeting of civilians by the coalition, which their missile strikes and warplanes’ bombing in areas of Syria have resulted in the death of hundreds of Syrian civilians, including tens of children and women, and we strongly emphasize that the shelling, targeting and the military operations should be out of civilian areas, where mainly civilian Syrians were killed, wounded and displaced as a result of the shelling that targeted areas of their presence, while the international community continues to its awful silence toward the Syrian people’s pain, and their hopes of reaching a country of justice, equality, democracy and freedom, And to put their murderers to trials in the specialized courts so they and their commanders and instigators get their punishment.
