The International Coalition Carried Out A Massacre In Al-Bukamal Today, Killing Dozens Of Civilians
Date: 15 / 5 / 2017

The USA-led International Coalition carried out a horrific massacre in Al-Bukamal city during the dawn, after executing multiple strikes against the city, which targeted an area near Al-Rahman Mosque and the vicinity of Al-Russafa as well as Al-Iman Mosque and the Hajanah Barrack.

The civilian death toll from the airstrikes has risen to 25 civilians, including locals and displaced families. The death toll might increase since rescue operations to pull trapped civilians out of the rubble area still ongoing.

More than 15 civilian-owned homes were destroyed, and many other civilian properties were badly damaged.
