The US coalition attacks the Syrian city of Hayin with white phosphorus

US-led international coalition aircraft bombed the Syrian city of Hayin, in the province of Deir Ezzor, with the use of white phosphorus, banned by international conventions, SANA reported, citing local sources.

"The international coalition carried out air strikes against the city of Hayin in the southeast of the province of Deir Ezzor with the use of white phosphorus," says the media.

The coalition carried out a similar attack against the same city on October 13.

Later, the Kurdish-Arab Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS) reported 14 coalition airstrikes in that province that day.

The international alliance, which groups more than 70 members, carries out military operations against ISIS (self-styled Islamic State, outlawed in Russia) in Syria and Iraq since August 2014.

Its operations in Iraq are carried out in cooperation with the Government of that country, but those carried out in Syria are not authorized by Damascus or the Security Council of the United Nations.
