US-Led Coalition Strike on Syria Kills and Injures Civilians - State Media
Earlier, Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve published its monthly report in which it stated that US-led forces have killed at least 1,302 civilians while battling the Daesh terrorist group in Syria and Iraq.

The warplanes of the US-led international coalition attacked the village of Zerif in an eastern suburb of Deir ez-Zor, leaving civilians among the dead and wounded, according to Syrian state news agency SANA, citing a local source.

The coalition reportedly conducted 34,514 strikes between August 2014 and the end of May 2019.

US President Donald Trump announced the pull-out from Syria in December 2018, promising to bring around 3,000 American soldiers home. The reason for the move, according to him, was the defeat of the Daesh* terrorist group in the Arab Republic.

The United States and its allies have been fighting the Daesh terror group in Syria and Iraq since 2014. The United States and its allies' operations against Daesh in Syria have not been authorised by the Syrian government or the UN Security Council.

US-Led Coalition Admits Killing at Least 1,321 Civilians in Syria, Iraq - Casualty Report
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US-led forces in Syria and Iraq have killed at least 1,321 civilians while battling the Daesh* terror group, the Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve (JTF-OIR) said in its monthly casualty assessment.

"Based on information available, CJTF-OIR assesses at least 1,321 civilians have been unintentionally killed by coalition actions since the beginning of Operation Inherent Resolve", the report said.

In late June, US-led forces admitted that at least 1,319 civilians had been killed in military operations against terrorists in Syria and Iraq since August 2014.

The coalition reportedly conducted 34,514 strikes between August 2014 and the end of May 2019.

According to Human Rights Watch, the US-led coalition has apparently given a total of approximately $80,000 to the victims of a January 2019 attack in Syria that killed 11 civilians. However, no compensation has been given to the families of those killed in "unlawful coalition airstrikes" in Al Hasakah governorate between 2017 and 2018, which resulted in over 60 civilian deaths and the destruction of property.

The United States and its allies' operations against Daesh in Syria have not been authorised by the Syrian government or the UN Security Council.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi underlined that establishment of security in international waterways and seas will be guaranteed through cooperation between Tehran and Moscow's naval forces.

"Military and naval cooperation between Iran and Russia guarantees security in the world's waterways more than ever and this cooperation is increasing at the strategic level," Rear Admiral Khanzadi said upon arrival in Saint Petersburg on Saturday.

"The two countries enjoy highly powerful navies at the regional and trans-regional levels and definitely, cooperation between the two forces will benefit both countries," he added.

Rear Admiral Khanzadi arrived in Saint Petersburg late on Saturday to hold talks with Russian officials on ways to develop naval cooperation.

During his three-day stay in Russia, he is also due to attend the Russian Navy Day ceremony on July 28 in which Russian President Vladimir Putin will take part.

Rear Admiral Khanzadi earlier said that his Russia visit was taking place at the invitation of his counterpart of the host country.

Naval agreement is also to be signed by the two countries, the commander noted, stressing that cooperation between the two powerful regional countries of Iran and Russia will surely bring good achievements that would help ensure naval security.
