Local Editor

The US-led coalition admitted to carrying out an airstrike in Syria's Deir Ezzor province, which killed at least 12 civilians.

While the coalition did not acknowledge the casualties among locals, it promised to launch an investigation into the incident.

The airstrike near the Syrian city of Mayadin, one of the last Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] strongholds, located 40 kilometers southeast of the Deir Ezzor provincial capital, was reported on Syrian media on Saturday.

The airstrike killed at least 12 civilians, most of them women and children, and caused significant damage to local properties and residents' homes.

A video, purportedly showing the aftermath of the incident, has been posted online. It shows destroyed and badly damaged buildings, as well as the bodies of women and children.

"Coalition military forces conducted one strike near Mayadin, Syria that engaged an [ISIS] tactical unit and destroyed an [ISIS] watercraft," a coalition spokesperson told RT in an emailed statement.
