The Syrian Foreign Ministry, in two letters to the UN, urged the international body to do its best to prevent US air raids on the war-hit country.

The ministry sent two letters to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the chairman of the UN Security Council on Wednesday, criticizing the international community’s silence towards the US’ atrocities.

The letter slammed the states and organizations which bargain over the humanitarian issues, but remain silent when it comes to the US-led coalition crimes against the Syrian people.

 “Syria strongly condemns crimes committed by the international coalition and the terrorist groups against Syrian civilians, infrastructure and services and economic facilities shedding the blood of hundreds and causing huge damage and destruction,” the letter added.

The letters also brought to attention the US’ latest airstrikes which have killed a large number of people and destroyed large amounts of civilian infrastructure.

Field sources reported on Tuesday that a sum of 15 civilians were killed and several more were wounded in the US-led coalition airstrikes on residential areas in a town in Southeastern Deir Ezzur.

The US warplanes bombed heavily residential neighborhoods in the town of Albu Kamal, killing 15 civilians and wounding several more.    

Also, over 45 civilians were killed and several more were wounded after US’ jets targeted the al-Touse’eiyah district in Raqqa city.

The incident comes just one day after the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that more than 3,000 people, including nearly 1,000 civilians, have been killed during the past month.

In the meantime, the UK-based monitoring group says at least 29 people have been killed in US airstrikes in Raqqa city.
