Strikes kill 23 civilians in IS-held area in northeast Syria: monitor

Beirut (AFP) – Air strikes killed at least 23 civilians including 10 children in a village held by the Islamic State group in northeastern Syria Tuesday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said.

“We don’t know for the moment if the US-led international coalition or Iraqi forces carried out the strike” on the village of Al-Qasr in the northeastern province of Hasakeh, the Britain-based monitor said.
