BEIRUT  — Syria's state news agency and activists say an airstrike on a village held by the Islamic State group in the country's east has left at least 10 people dead including four children.

SANA says Friday's airstrike on the village of Kishkiyeh was carried out by the U.S.-led coalition, reporting it killed 10 civilians including four children.

The DeirEzzor 24 activist collective said 11 people were killed including two women and four children in the airstrike on the village. It also blamed the U.S.-led coalition.

Kurdish-led fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces have been on the offensive in the last area held by ISIS in the eastern province of Deir el-Zour under the cover of airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition.

Hundreds were killed in the fighting over the past three months.
