The civilian death toll from the massacre, which is believed to have been carried out by Iraqi army aircraft in the city of Al-Bukamal, has risen to 35 civilians, including 15 children and 6 women, in addition to the wounding of more than 120 others.
The casualties might still increase since most of the wounded are in a critical condition. They are being treated in several hospitals in the region which suffer from a lack of medical cadres and supplies. Rescue operations to save those trapped under the rubble had continued until the morning.
The coalition spokesperson denied any links with the massacre.
The aircraft, believed to have been Iraqi army warplanes, carried out yesterday airstrikes on the Rahman Mosque and the Massaken area nearby the Hajanah in the city of Al-Bukamal as well as a house for displaced families.
