Damascus has repeatedly accused the US-led coalition of causing civilian casualties while conducting aerial operations in the country without authorisation from the Syrian government or the UN Security Council.

According to Syrian TV, at least eight civilians died on Friday due to another airstrike by the US-led coalition in the city of Hajin. All the victims were members of one family, the Ikhbariya broadcaster reported.

The strike comes just a week after another coalition operation killed over 30 civilians in Deir ez-Zor province, according to Syrian state television.
