The coalition carried out a harrowing massacre today after launching multiple airstrikes in Ash-Sha’fah town, eastern Deir Ezzor. A D24 correspondent said that ‘ the coalition bombed positions inside the town, including Al-Rafi Satam complex, Al-Sur crossroad, Bustan Said Al-Thabit and the Hasiyah area.” He added ‘ the strikes killed at least eight civilians and severely injured many others, in addition to the death of nine Daesh fighters.’
Ash-Shafah town, and other Daesh-held areas in Deir Ezzor, are facing the lack of medical supplies, as SDF continue besieging the area. Those who are injured in airstrikes are dying regularly due to lack of health care.
Daesh still controls the villages of Baghuz, Ash Shafah, Al Sussah, Abu Hassan and Hajin city in the countryside of Deir Ezzor, as the SDF being backed by the coalition are attempting to capture them to end Daesh presence in the area
