DAMASCUS, March 17 (Xinhua) -- At least 10 people were killed Sunday by renewed U.S.-led airstrikes in eastern Syria, state news agency SANA reported.
The airstrikes targeted the Baghouz area, where the last Islamic State (IS) stronghold is located in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour province.
Children were among those killed by the airstrikes, said SANA.
The airstrikes are the latest to hit IS-held areas in the eastern Euphrates River region in eastern Deir al-Zour.
On March 11, at least 50 people were killed by U.S.-led airstrikes, which targeted the IS-held area in the town of Baghouz.
It came as the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) targeted the last redoubt of the IS in eastern Syria.
Thousands of people, including the IS militants, left while others are still in the area refusing to surrender.
The Kurdish-led SDF with the backing of the U.S.-led coalition has launched a crushing offensive to eliminate the IS from the eastern Euphrates River region in eastern Syria since September last year.
The IS militants are now besieged in an area fewer than two square km in the farmlands of Baghouz.
