#Syria| U.S.-led coalition air strike kills 23 civilians near Raqqa

A US-led coalition air strike killed at least 23 civilians in a village north of so-called Islamic State’s Syrian stronghold of Raqqa, activists say.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that six women and a child were among those who died in the raids on al-Heisha overnight.

The IS-held village has been the target of a US-backed alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters seeking to capture Raqqa.

A coalition spokesman confirmed that it had conducted strikes in the area.
