At least 60 civilians have lost their lives in fresh airstrikes conducted by the US-led coalition in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr Province, according to Syrian media reports.

Syria’s official news agency said that Tuesday’s air raids destroyed homes in several Dayr al-Zawr districts and left scores, mostly women and children, wounded.

The strikes came less than 48 hours after the bombardment by the US-led jets of some areas, including a hospital, in the city of Abu Kamal in the same province, which killed 6 civilians and injured 10 others.

The US-led coalition has been conducting air raids against what are said to be Daesh positions inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.

But the strikes have on many occasions resulted in civilian casualties and failed to fulfill their declared aim of countering terrorism.

On Sunday, Damascus wrote to the United Nations, calling for the dissolving of the US-led coalition in Syria and an immediate halt to the alliance’s crimes in the Arab country.

In two letters addressed to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the world body’s Security Council, the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates complained that the coalition “continues to commit massacres against Syrian innocent civilians through conducting systematic airstrikes.”

It further noted that the US-led strikes are meant to support terrorist groups operating in Syria.

You people are just not listening ! I told you, and I told the Russian Embassy here and in LOndon. The americans will just continue to bomb the hell out of Syria antil they are able to hand it over to the "jude" so that they can get to Iran. You have to shoot every "nato" plane down otherwise you will all die. "nato" are just laughing at your stoopidity !" You need to get some decent Anti-aircraft missiles Active Homing, NOT Passive.

The U.S.A. Government is bribed to make money for those that make these bombs, and they don't care if all these bombs only
got dropped on New Born Babies, only that they are exploded so they can buy more. Murder for Money, Endless War Crimes,
this is what The U.S.A. Government does, and it has put the
Taxpayers of The U.S.A. 20 Trillion in Debt, not for Freedom
but for Profits of a very few people.

Bombing a hospital is definitely a war crime and it isn't the first by the US and coalition. Assad needs to lay the Law down.

That makes Russia wonderful and untrustworthy. I wonder if Russia can ever do this in countries like Saudi Arabia or Israel which are staunch American allies without any military reaction from America.
