US-led coalition strikes against Daesh terrorists in the eastern Syrian city of Abu Kamal (al Bukamal) left at least 31 civilians dead and dozens injured, Syrian media reported Tuesday.
The number of victims of the coalition strikes in the province of Deir-ez-Zor, conducted on Monday, might rise as many people remained under the rubble, Syria TV reported.
On Monday, the United Kingdom-based monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed the US-led coalition strike killed 23 people, mostly civilians, in Abu Kamal.
Commenting on the issue, Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman Col. John Dorrian wrote on Twitter that the coalition did not carry out strikes near Abu Kamal.
