57 dead in US-led strikes on IS Syria prison

Turkey returns fire on Kurdish YPG in Syria's Afrin - broadcaster

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said 57 people are thought to have been killed in an US-led air strike in an eastern Syrian town controlled by Isis.

It said the Mayadeen mission was "meticulously planned and executed to reduce the risk.to non-combatants". It was captured by the IS and turned into a prison, half of it for IS militants imprisoned by the group itself, while the other half is for civilians captured by the IS.

In addition to the coalition, Russian Federation and Syria often carry out air strikes against IS in eastern Syria.

Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the USA -led coalition, said: "With every single allegation we will take it and look into it".

Dillon added that Observatory reporting had previously been exaggerated.

This season, he was named the Houston Rockets' head coach after previously coaching the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers . The Rockets were 35-7 in games in which Gordon scored at least 15 points, including 17-2 when he scored 20 or more.

"This allegation will be provided to our civilian casualty team for assessment", he said.

"This disrupts [IS's] ability to conduct terrorist attacks in both in Iraq, Syria, against coalition partner forces, and also against our homelands", he told the BBC.

Activist-run Deir Ezzor 24 media outlet claimed that at least 15 ISIS jailers and fighters, as well as dozens of civilians, were among those killed in the strike. Syrian state-run TV station al-Ikhbariya also cited a correspondent in the area as saying thatcoalition warplanes had destroyed a building in al-Mayadeen used as a prison by IS.

Mayadeen lies in the Euphrates Valley some 45 kilometers (28 miles) southeast of the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor.

The US-led coalition said last week that it had killed ISIS's top cleric Turki Binali in a 31 May strike on Mayadeen.
