U.S.-led coalition airstrikes killed 18 civilians, including eight children, in a night raid Wednesday in an eastern Syria holdout of Daesh (ISIS), an activist group said Thursday.The strike raised the civilian death toll, which includes family members of militants, to 99 since last Thursday from a Syrian Democratic Forces offensive on the last Daesh pocket of control around the eastern Syrian town of Hajin.The latest incident followed a report last week from the Observatory that claimed that coalition strikes had killed over 70 civilians in eastern Syria over a span of three days.
