BEIRUT - Syria on Thursday described a strike by the US-led coalition overnight in east Syria as a "war crime" and called for the coalition to be dismantled, Syrian state news agency (SANA) said.

"We demand [that the international community] condemn this massacre and hold the coalition responsible for it," SANA reported, citing a letter sent by the foreign ministry to the United Nations and saying that the coalition was illegal and should be disbanded.
