Local Syrian sources reported the death of over 100 civilians yesterday night as a result of the international coalition’s air strike on a refugee camp in the Deir ez-Zor suburb in east Syria.
Syrian newspaper Euphrates Post reported that over 100 people, most of whom were women and children, were killed, according to initial counts, as a result of an air strike on a refugee camp near the town of Aqeedat, in east Deir ez-Zor.
Twitter users posted pictures of children wounded as a result of the air strike on the refugee camp.
