In an attack against ISIS in Syria that started on Thursday evening and continued throughout Friday, over 100 people were killed, including dozens of children. The attack occurred in al-Mayadeen, next to the city of Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria.

According to human rights organizations, the heavy assault on ISIS strongholds in the area was led by the US Air Force. According to the report, the attack claimed the lives of approximately 40 children who were in the vicinity of the bombed area.

ISIS is slowly losing its control over Syria and Iraq due to the increasing air-strikes on the terrorist organization’s strongholds. The coalition against ISIS stated that it’s doing what it can to minimize civilian casualties and extreme cases such as these will be examined and investigated.
