Civilian killed in raid by plane believed to be American in Al-Sawma’ah in Al-Baydha


A civilian was killed by an air raid by an aircraft believed to be a US drone on Monday, a local source said, in the area of “Ja’er” in Al-Sawma’ah  district of al-Baydha province.

The source told Al-Masdar online that the air strike targeted Saleh Ma'raj al-Qaisi car at 10 a.m. Tuesday near the health unit, which led to his immediate death.

He noted that al-Qaisi had no connection with extremist organizations in the province.

According to the source, unmanned aerial planes have been flying in the area continuously for two days.

The United States has been carrying out repeated raids on presumed positions of militants affiliated with al-Qaeda and ISIS in al-Baydha province, but a number of raids targeted civilians in those areas.
