Cluster bombs kill at least 15 in eastern Syria

US Faces Reports That A Coalition Airstrike Killed Dozens Of Civilians

"As we have previously stated, the United States is in Syria to eliminate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria".

He said cluster bombs were used in the strike, which left many women and children dead.

US-led coalition planes, as well as the Syrian and Russian air forces, are all known to fly sorties over the area. Head of Deir Ezzor 24, Omar Abou Layla, said he expected the number of reported deaths to increase.

At least 57 people were killed in an airstrike on an IS-run jail in the Euphrates River Valley on Monday.

This escalation comes as USA forces downed two Iranian drones in the span of two weeks and bombed an Iranian-backed militia.

Along with the Syrian Democratic Forces, led by Kurdish militias, the coalition is now taking part in an offensive against IS positions in al-Raqqa province, the terror organization's main stronghold in Syria.

It says it takes great pains to avoid harming or killing civilians and investigates all reports that it has done so. The two-hour meeting took place in Ayn Issa, a town about 30 miles north of Raqqa city, where the council is based.

Asked by Burnett if that meant Syria would pull back, Gorka answered, "I think if we're talking about rational actors, if we're talking about an intact command and control chain, then yes, the reasonable decision would be to not test the resolve of the President".

He went on saying that repeating baseless claims against the Syrian government is part of the U.S. scenario to cover up its failures in several fronts against terrorism and to hamper Assad government's advances in its fight against terrorists.

Turkey's military says it has returned fire after a cross-border attack by Syrian Kurdish forces.

The YPG is the main component of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a USA -backed militia that is battling the Islamic State group in the extremists' de facto capital, Raqqa.
