On Tuesday, more than 40 people were reportedly killed in a single incident when a coalition airstrike allegedly struck a residential building near the city's amusement park, citizen journalist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently reported via messaging app Telegram.
Meanwhile, Donatella Rovera, a Senior Crisis Response Advisor of Amnesty International has also "confirmed that the United States operations in Raqqa were greatly endangering civilians". "More can and must be done to preserve the lives of civilians trapped in the conflict".
In a report released today, the organization documents how hundreds of civilians have been killed and injured since an offensive began in June to recapture the "capital" and main stronghold of the armed group calling itself Islamic State (IS).
The report also said that the coalition's use of airstrikes, while more accurate than artillery fire, has often hit civilians at home or while they attempted to flee. In its report, the group called on all sides, including the US -led coalition, to stop using weapons that result in disproportionate and indiscriminate attacks.
The report said civilians also come under fire from the Russia-backed Syrian government forces fighting IS militants to the south of Raqqa.
At least seven civilians have lost their lives when the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group conducted a series of aerial assaults on Syria's eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.

At a news conference in Moscow, he said the area under Syrian government control has increased from 19,000 to 78,000 square kilometers (7,335 to 30,115 square miles) since Russian Federation launched its air campaign in September 2015.
Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the military's General Staff said the Russian two-year campaign backing the Syrian government has allowed President Bashar Assad's forces to quadruple the territory under their control.
"In 2007, the United Nations said very clearly that the bombing in civilian areas is a violation of global human rights law and that the presence of a few combatants in a civilian area does not change the nature of that area".
Survivors also told Amnesty International that coalition forces have been targeting boats crossing the Euphrates River, one of the only remaining ways out of the city. "They have the means to do that".
Nonetheless, as the battle for Raqqa intensifies, the coalition said, "more civilians will be at risk because ISIS holds them hostage and refuses to let them flee".
According to Reuters' reports, there is a telephone hotline linking US and Russian air operations centers, preventing clashes between their warplanes as they fight for different sides.
"We regret civilian casualties enormously, but the people who focus on civilian casualties more than anybody are the West", Jones said during a teleconference briefing from Baghdad.More news: Samsung's heir found guilty of bribery and other charges
