BEIRUT, July 21./TASS/. The leadership of the Syrian opposition based in Istanbul demanded from the US-led international coalition to urgently suspend airstrikes on ground targets in Syria, following reports on the death of more than 125 civilians near the town of Manbij northeast of Aleppo in coalition strikes.
The president of the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, Anas al-Abdah, sent on Wednesday an urgent letter to the foreign and defense ministers of the international anti-terrorist coalition countries.
"We believe that such incidents indicate a major loophole in the current operational rules followed by the international coalition in conducting strikes in populated areas. It is essential that such investigation not only result in revised rules of procedure for future operations, but also inform accountability for those responsible for such major violations," said the letter posted on the coalition’s website.
