Air strike in Syria's Deir Ezzor killed 26 IS jihadists: monitor

Earlier reports by the Syrian state news agency SANA and the pro-Damascus al-Watan newspaper accused the USA -led coalition of carrying out the air strike.

Daesh terrorists swept across Syria and Iraq in 2014, declaring autonomy in areas they controlled.

Most of the civilians were Iraqi, Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman said.

"The coalition or our partner forces may have conducted strikes in the vicinity of al-Soussa. yesterday", coalition spokesman US Army Col Sean Ryan told Reuters news agency.

Just across the river, the Syrian government waged its own campaign against the jihadis with the help of Russian Federation and Iran.

On December 14, 2017, Syria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates stated that the US-led coalition was indeed targeting civilian facilities and providing Daesh terrorists with cover.

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. Since Moscow's intervention in Syria in 2015, however, Iraq has also maintained a joint operations room with Iran, Russia and Syria.

In Syria fighting continues to bring death and destruction as an air strike reportedly killed over 50 civilians.

Other times, however, the identity of the aggressor was less clear; last month, both the US and Israel were blamed for deadly strikes that killed pro-Syrian government fighters in Deir Ezzor.

According to Syrian state media, the number of the dead is expected to rise as scores remain trapped under the rubble and are in critical condition.

They have since lost most of that territory to various offensives, but still retain pockets of land in Syria including in the country's vast Badiya desert and in Deir Ezzor.
