Six civilians, including children, are killed in US-led strike on ISIS in Syria

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BEIRUT – Four children were among at least six civilians killed in a US-led air strike on the ISIS’s embattled enclave in eastern Syria, a monitor said on Saturday.

The Friday strike on the Euphrates Valley village of Baghouz killed 10 ISIS fighters as well as the six civilians, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

There was no immediate comment from the US-led coalition.

The Britain-based Observatory said the coalition had stepped up its air strikes against ISIS since the jihadists killed 19 people, four of them Americans, in a suicide bombing on a restaurant in the flash-point northern town of Manbij on Wednesday.
