Airstrikes kill 35 civilians in Syria's Deir ez-Zor

Many civilians among 54 dead in anti-IS strike in Syria monitor

The report of civilian casualties was being forwarded to the "Civilian Casualty Cell for further assessment", he said.

The small pocket of jihadi control targeted Thursday lies on the border of not only Syria and Iraq, but of multiple and sometimes overlapping anti-ISIS campaigns.

State news agency SANA reported the strike late Thursday, accusing the US-led coalition of carrying it out. Attacks spiked after the extremists were evacuated from their last bastion outside Damascus in May, many heading to the Badiya desert, the Observatory said.

As a result, the Syrian government considers US -led coalition presence illegitimate.

The US-led coalition was initially blamed for the attack but US officials later said it had been carried out by Israel, which has carried out several raids on Iran-linked targets in Syria.

Iraq, which considers itself an ally of both rival factions, has also launched airstrikes against ISIS in eastern Syria.

The US-led anti-ISIS coalition, partnered forces, and the Iraqi military have conducted air strikes on the eastern side of the Euphrates, in-line with a Russian/Coalition demarcation line that runs roughly along the Euphrates.

The U.S. -led alliance intensified strikes on Islamic State posts near the Iraqi-Syrian border in May.

Fifty-four people, including at least 28 civilians as well as Islamic State (IS) group militants, died in the strike on a village near the Iraqi border, a monitoring group says.

According to the United Kingdom -based Observatory, the civilians had sought shelter at an ice factory in the ISIS-held area. The Syrian state media reported that the U.S. was behind the strike.
