Damascus June 13 (IANS) At least 12 civilians of the same family were killed by renewed US-led airstrikes on Syria s northeastern province of al-Hasakah state news agency SANA reported.
The airstrikes on Tuesday targeted the village of Tal Shayer in the southeastern countryside of al-Hasakah the latest in a string of airstrikes that have caused civilian casualties as per a Xinhua report.
A day earlier the US-led coalition killed 18 civilians mostly Iraqi refugees in airstrikes on the town of Khoeberah in the southern countryside of al-Hasakah said SANA adding that women and children were among the killed.
The attacks came after 10 civilians mostly women and children were killed last Tuesday in the US-led airstrikes on the town of Jaza a in the southern countryside of al-Shaddadah city in al-Hasakah province.
SANA said the US-led coalition is ramping up airstrikes on the southern countryside of al-Hasakah to enable the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to take control.
The US and the SDF have been on an offensive against positions of the Islamic State militant group in al-Hasakah to consolidate the Kurdish control in areas east of the Euphrates river.
The Syrian government has slammed the killing of civilians by the US-led coalition calling it an "illegitimate" coalition that should be disbanded.
