14 civilians, including 6 children, were killed in airstrikes in northern Syria, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The organization added that the aircraft that carried out the airstrikes were most likely warplanes belonging to the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS. The airstrikes targeted the ISIS-held northern city of Raqqa.
Last week, a UN report determined that the Syrian government was responsible for the deadly airstrike that hit a humanitarian aid convoy last September in Aleppo. 14 aid workers were killed in the attack. The UN determined that Russia was not involved in the attack, saying that the Syrian Air Force “meticulously planned and ruthlessly carried out” the attack.
