(Iraq Now News)- The US-led coalition combating ISIS denied Sunday that its strikes on eastern Syria on Saturday had killed civilians.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said coalition strikes killed 43 people, including 36 family members of ISIS fighters in the village of Abou al-Hassan.

But the coalition denied that its air raids there had killed any non-combatants.

The US envoy for the coalition, Brett McGurk on Sunday appeared to blame regime forces stationed "across the river" for the civilian casualties.
