At least 29 civilians, including women and children have been killed in fresh air raids conducted by the US-led coalition in Syria’s northern city of Raqqa since Monday evening.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 9 women and 14 children lost their lives in the coalition air raids on Raqqa city. They added that 14 of the dead were members of one family who had fled to Raqqa from the central city of Palmyra.

The SOHR further warned that the death toll could rise as a number of people had been critically wounded in the aerial assaults.

The US and its allies launched a campaign of airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh positions inside Iraq in August 2014 after the Takfiri terrorist group overran parts of the Arab country.
