US-Led Coalition Airstrike Kills 23 Civilians in Syria’s Raqqa

An airstrike by the US-led coalition killed at least 23 people, including a child, in a town near the ISIL-held city of Raqqa in Northeastern Syria.

The strike targeted the village of al-Heesha, about 40 kilometers north of Raqqah on Wednesday, presstv reported.

Raqqa, on the Northern bank of the Euphrates River, was overrun by the ISIL terrorists in March 2013 and was proclaimed the terrorist group’s so-called headquarters the following year.

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

In mid October, at least 15 civilians were killed when a US-led attack hit areas in the Daham Village near Suluk in the Northeast of Raqqa.

Since 2014, the United States has been leading a bombing campaign in Syria and neighboring Iraq with the declared objective of hitting ISIL.
