US-led coalition warplanes destroy mosque in Syria

A mosque in Syria's eastern Deir ez-Zor province held by Daesh and YPG/PKK terrorist groups was destroyed by U.S.-led coalition warplanes Friday, local sources said, Daily Sabah reported.

Reliable sources told Anadolu Agency that immediately after Friday prayers, U.S.-led coalition aircraft had struck a mosque in Deir ez-Zor's Al-Susah district.

Strikes on the village of Sousa killed 18 civilians including seven children late Thursday and 14 more civilians on Friday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Dozens were wounded and many remained under the rubble in the village in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor near the Iraqi border, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

A coalition spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
