US-led coalition air strikes kill 14 civilians in east Syria

At least 14 civilians were killed on Saturday in US-led coalition air strikes on the Islamic State (ISIS) group's last holdout in eastern Deir Ezzor province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The organization said, the strikes on the area intensified following an attempted terror attack on a coalition base in the nearby village of Al-Bahra. ISIS overran large swathes of Syria and neighboring Iraq in 2014, proclaiming a "caliphate" in land it controlled. But the group has since lost most of its territory to various offensives in both countries.
