Russian strike kills 38 fleeing civilians in east Syria: monitorA Russian air strike killed 38 civilians on Wednesday as they tried to cross the Euphrates river to escape fighting in eastern Syria’s Deir Ezzor province, a monitor said. Deir Ezzor borders Iraq and civilians have fled into the province to escape the battles against IS in their own country. Two campaigns are being fought against IS in east Deir Ezzor, with one on the western side of the Euphrates river that slices diagonally across the province led by Syrian troops and backed by ally Russia.
