(IraqiNews.com) BAGHDAD- According to a report released by a monitoring group in Syria, at least 56 civilians including 11 children were killed during US-led airstrikes outside a ISIS-occupied Syrian village.

“Apart from the already dead civilians, a dozen others were also seriously injured in the airstrikes. Conditions of some are very critical,” this was stated in the report made public by the British based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said, “Residents were fleeing Al-Tukhar village in Aleppo province when the strikes hit. The strikes appeared to have been carried out in error, with the civilians being mistaken for IS fighters”.

SOHR, in its report, further informed that the strikes in Al-Tukhar come a day after US-led coalition air strikes killed 21 civilians in and around Manbij, a northern Syrian town.

“At least 15 civilians were killed at Hasawneh neighbourhood,” SOHR further informed.
It may be mentioned here that Al-Tukhar is 14 km north of Manbij and both are in Aleppo province, which in the recent past has witnessed some of the worst fighting in Syria.
