After the death of 467 civilians in their massacres in 2016… warplanes of the International Coalition commit a massacre and kill 11 civilians


It rose to 11 at least, the number of people who were killed and documented by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, they were killed in airstrikes by the international coalition on areas in the northern and western countryside of Al-Raqqah during the past 24 hours, where two of them were killed in bombing at the village of Ghadban and in the al-Swidiyyeh Kabira town in the east of al-Swidiyyeh Sghireh village, where it rose to 9 at least –including 5 children and citizen women all of them are from the same family– the number of people who were killed in the massacre that was carried out by warplanes of the coalition on the village, and the death toll is expected to rise because there are some people in critical situation. Al-Swidiyyeh massacre is considered the first massacre against civilians carried out by warplanes of the coalition during the year 2017.

And the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published yesterday that as if the Syrians have not had enough killing by Bashar al-Assad’s regime warplanes and barrel bombs in their cities, towns and villages, so that the international coalition warplanes –which have entered for the purpose of “fighting the Islamic state organization”– go off the track and its missiles kill citizens, and increase the suffering of the Syrians and raise the death toll, where the Syrian Observatory for human rights documented since the first of January 2016 until the first of January 2017 the death of 2429 people during a whole year of bombing by international coalition on areas of Syria, including 467 civilian civilians, they are 108 children under the age of eighteen and 60 citizen women over the age of eighteen, as well as 299 men, also these strikes have left hundreds wounded, some of whom suffered permanent disabilities, let alone the devastation caused by the bombing in the property of citizens in the areas that were targeted by these warplanes.

Among the total number of casualties documented by the Syrian Observatory over the past year there are 1864 member and commander of the “Islamic State” organization, most notably Abu Omar al-Shishani who served as the “Minister of War” in the ranks of the “Islamic state”, also the Observatory documented the death of 8 fighters and commanders in the ranks of the Islamic and “jihadist” factions that operate in Syria, in addition to documenting by the Observatory for the killing of 90 members in ranks of the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them, they were killed by warplanes of the coalition when they targeted Deir Ezzor airbase area and al-Thardah Mount and its surroundings in Deir Ezzor Province.
