In the Amnesty and Airwars’s joint April 2019 report “War in Raqqa: Rhetoric versus Reality”, one civilian was reportedly killed in alleged Coalition airstrikes in Raqqa. Although Airwars assesses single sourced incidents as “weak”, researchers have assessed this incident “fair” due to the depth of material provided by Amnesty.
According to the report “Iman al-Joumaa, 18 and pregnant; relative of al-Nasser family, was killed when her home was hit by an air strike and partially destroyed.”
The victims sister in law, Najah, told Amnesty in a testimony that “The air strike destroyed the room where Iman was at that moment and killed her instantly. Her husband and the rest of the family were in another part of the house and survived.”
In their monthly civilian casualty reports, the US-led Coalition has indicated that the credibility of this civilian harm allegation is in the process of being assessed.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
