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 “Fadi Qahir Mohammeda al-Nashif, 23, a lorry driver, was killed in an airstrike while driving on the northern outskirt of Raqqa.”
His mother, Umm Fadi, gave a testimony to Amnesty stating that “My son was killed while driving his truck. An air strike hit his truck. He had just got married.”
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.
