July 18th 2016: Manbij, Aleppo governorate, Syria
Summary: The Manbij Documentation Agency initially claimed that “Sabr the son of Abdallah al Saidi and his family [7 people] were killed in coalition raids on his house near the education department behind his father’s building.”

That claim was robustly denied by Manbij Mother of All Worlds: “We totally deny what some  pages published yesterday about the martyrdom of Sabr Abdullah Al-Saidi and his family. They are all well and alive – we heard this from Sabr’s son Haydar al Saidi. The house was indeed bombed but they were out of it.”
The Documentation Agency responded swiftly by withdrawing its allegation, noting: “#‎Correct‬ion: After checking with Sabr al Saidi’s family and relatives it has become clear that he is alive and well; that the damage was only material, and the wounds light. As a result of the steep deterioration of events it is not always possible for us to get confirmation about a piece of news from more than one source. We make mistakes and we apologise to everyone. Thank God for the safety of Sabr, and we apologize to his family and his relatives for inadvertently publishing false news.”

July 18th-19th 2016: Al Tokhar near Manbij, Aleppo governorate, Syria

Some of the children reported killed in the Tokhaz event (via Manbij Direct)
Some of the children reported killed in the Tokhar event (via Manbij Direct)

Summary: In what may have been the single greatest loss of life from a Coalition action in the first two years of its war against Daesh, between 78 and 203 civilians were reported killed in a catastrophic event at the village of Tokhar – scene of a number of other recent civilian fatalities from alleged Coalition strikes.
The Coalition later admitted that “up to 24 civilians who had been interspersed with combatants were inadvertently killed.”
Local group Manbij Mother of All The World was the first to report the event, initially noting 25 or more fatalities. The group quickly raised the death toll to 56 then 59 civilians, eventually reporting that as many as 203 non-combatants had died. Most others placed the fatality range in the low 100s. Manbij Direct noted shortly after the strike, for example, that “so far there have been 94 martyrs identified, but there are still entire families under the rubble.” So-called Islamic State also issued a tweet mid-morning suggesting that 160 civilians had died. At least 73 decreased civilians have so far been named, including 11 or more children.
There was some confusion about the site of the event. While Manbij Mother of All Worlds said five homes were struck on the outskirts of town, most other sources said a former school being used by displaced civilians was hit.
According to Syria Direct, “The airstrike, at 3:00am Tuesday morning, destroyed a school in a-Tokhar.” The news site quoted local citizen journalist Abu Omar al-Manbiji as saying: “That school housed displaced people from neighboring villages. So far we count 124 dead from the attack, and that number could very well increase.” Others placed the event nearer 5am.
The Coalition told reporters it was aware of the Tokhar allegations and had launched a preliminary investigation.
The US’s proxies said they had supplied the intelligence for the strike, with the SDF noting in a statement that “
a large group of Daesh militants was moving in the vicinity of the village and within Altokhar, with their vehicles and military equipment… We had received information that the village is free from civilians.” 

The SDF also claimed local groups were fabricating civilian casualty claims, in order to aid ISIL and discredit Kurdish forces.
In contrast, the US’s other proxy the Free Syrian Army condemned “the horrific massacres committed – and which are still being committed – by the international coalition aircraft against unarmed civilians in the city and countryside of Manbej.”
The Assad regime-controlled SANA instead claimed French aircraft were reponsible for the deaths: “
French warplanes working as part of the so-called ‘international coalition’ led by the United States over the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic committed an illegal and bloody massacre (which is an affront to humanity) near the Syrian-Turkish border. They targeted with a violent aerial bombardment the village of Greater Tokhar, a peaceful village located in the northern outskirts of the city Manbej – exterminating entire families and flattening homes in an inhumane manner.”
In a case study issued in October 2016, it was noted that “Satellite imagery from 21 July 2016 analysed by Amnesty International indicates nine locations in which houses were severely damaged or destroyed – although given other fighting and air strikes in the area they cannot be conclusively linked with the same air strikes.” The international NGO added that “The attacks appear to have been conducted without adequate precautions taken to safeguard civilians and may have amounted to indiscriminate or disproportionate attacks.”
And following its own lengthy investigation, the Syrian Network noted:
SNHR documented the killing of 98 civilians, including 59 children and 27 women, in a bombing by fixed-wing international coalition forces warplanes on Al Toukhar village.”
On December 1st the Coalition issued a lengthy statement in whch it conceded it had killed civilians – though far below public estimates: “
During a strike that killed nearly 100 ISIL fighters, and destroyed 13 fighting positions, seven ISIL vehicles, two VBIEDs, a tactical vehicle, and a mortar system, it is assessed that up to 24 civilians who had been interspersed with combatants were inadvertently killed in a known ISIL staging area where no civilians had been seen in the 24 hours prior to the attack. Reports indicated that approximately 100 ISIL fighters were preparing for a large counterattack against partnered Syrian Arab Coalition/Syrian Democratic Forces and, unknown to Coalition planners, civilians were moving around within the military staging area, even as other civilians in the nearby village had departed over the previous days”

American Alliance planes – around 15 days ago –  committed a massacre against three families opposite al Fatah mosque near the Net Facebook shop. The number of martyrs is estimated at 15 martyrs, who are still until this moment under the rubble. They are the family of Hamoudi Abu Said and his neighbours. They were targeted at night with several rockets by the planes. The homes are traditional Arab homes on the Aleppo road near the Disho building, al Fatah mosque and Facebook Net shop. And the information we received is scarce because of the lack of communication. Please circular because the families are still under the rubble, and we need a bulldozer to remove the rubble and exhume the bodies.”

July 28th 2016: Al Ghandourra village near Manbij, Aleppo governorate, Syria
Summary: At least 22 civilians were killed in a Coalition airstrike on the village of al Ghandourra. According to Syria Newsdesk, the noon strikes hit the main market andii the elementary school in the town, which was occupied by so-called ISIL.
The US later admitted to inadvertently killing 15 civilians in the incident, claiming that “the munition struck the vehicle after it slowed in a populated area after the munition was released.”
Extremely graphic footage later released by ISIL’s media wing showed much of the market destroyed, with significant civilian casualties. One unnamed eyewitness states: “T
oday the crusader coalition planes bombed this market, a market full of civilians, so that pieces of bodies were flying around, men, women and children. There are bodies that have turned to charcoal that can’t be identified, and others are in pieces that their families can’t identify them. Is this place a place of the mujahedin? We ask God almighty to destroy America and all those who support it, we ask God to destroy the coalition and all its allies and all those who are fighting muslims, all those who are aggressing against muslims. Where are you Muslim ummah where are you?”
According to the Syrian Observatory, 28 civilians “
were killed when warplanes of the international coalition committed a massacre in the town of al-Ghandour in the northwestern countryside of Manbij city east of Aleppo province. The town is more than 23 kilometers away from Manbij city, and the death toll is expected to rise because there are some people in a critical situation. Also SOHR received information that 13 other people were killed in the same bombing, but they were not identified yet, and it is unknown whether they were civilian citizens or members from the ‘Islamic state’.
The Pentagon announced later that day it was conducting an investigation into al Ghandourra: “U.S. Central Command initiated an assessment following internal operational reporting that a strike today near Manbij, Syria may have resulted in civilian casualties. We can confirm the Coalition conducted airstrikes in the area in the last 24 hours.” A senior US military official told Airwars that the Coalition’s internal monitoring had already raised concerns relating to the al Ghandourra strike – and that the decision to proceed almost immediately to an investigation represented a more pro-active approach to civilian casualty allegations.
An Amnesty case study published in October 2016 used satellite and photograph analysis to determine the likelihood of civlians having been killed: “The strikes reportedly hit the public market, as shown in a video clip which Amnesty International was able to geolocate in al-Ghandoura’s central main street and other images of the immediate aftermath of the attack in which dead bodies and significant destruction is clearly visible. One child victim shown in several on-line images of the attack’s aftermath is also clearly visible at the start of the video clip. Amnesty International was unable to find any of the images on-line before the date of the incident,” the NGO noted. “Amnesty International is concerned that the loss of civilian life in the strike resulted from a failure by the Coalition forces to take necessary precautions and the attack may have been disproportionate or otherwise indiscriminate.”
The Coalition conceded that it had killed 15 civilians in a statement issued on December 1st 2016: “N
ear Arghanndorh, Syria: During a strike on a moving ISIL vehicle, 15 civilians were inadvertently killed when the munition struck the vehicle after it slowed in a populated area after the munition was released.”
The Syrian Network eventually concluded that 22 civilians had died in the attack. It quoted local eyewitness
Mr. Safi Al Sayed: “I saw two warplanes for the international coalition forces soaring in the sky. They were supporting the Kurdish forces in their clashes with ISIS near our town. The warplanes fired a missile that targeted shops near the town mosque. In just moments, the shops were reduced to ruins and everyone was inside were turned into burned dead bodies. I smelled the burned dead bodies. It was a tough thing to see.”

August 23rd 2016: Raqqa, Raqqa governorate, Syria
Summary: The United States self-reported that one of its airstrikes in the vicinity of Raqqa may have killed civilians.
The incident appears to correlate with a number of reported attacks on the city that day.
In a press release issued August 24th, CENTCOM noted: “
A strike yesterday on an ISIL weapons facility near Ar Raqqah, Syria, may have resulted in civilian casualties, according to U.S. Central Command’s own post-strike assessment.

CENTCOM’s internal assessment of possible civilian casualties in this incident has been deemed credible. The incident will be reviewed, next, at the joint task force level at which point officials will decide whether an investigation is needed.
Reports indicate that what appeared to be a non-military vehicle drove into the target area after the weapon was released from the aircraft. The vehicle’s occupants may have perished as a result of the strike.
CENTCOM has extensive processes and techniques in place to avoid or minimize civilian casualties. Every report of civilian casualties, from either internal or external sources, is scrutinized regarding possible casualties and collateral damage. Assessments that are determined to be credible are reviewed as to whether the actions comply with the principles of the Law of Armed Conflict.”
Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered reported five airstrikes on the city on the night of August 23rd, including Fayez Mansour Street in downtown; a water reservoir in the south of the city; and a school.

In an investigation published in October 2016, the Syrian Network reported: “Fixed-wing international coalition forces warplanes fired missiles that targeted a center for ISIS in Al Raqqa city, which is held by the group. The bombardment resulted in the killing of Mr. Khalil Gharbi Al Thaher who had been arrested by ISIS since June 2016. We believe that this incident doesn’t constitute a breach to the international humanitarian law because the target was a military center for ISIS. We included it in the report as one of the incidents that resulted in casualties even though it was within the domain that the international humanitarian law allows for.”
Given reported British incidents in the area that day, Airwars flagged the incident to the UK’s MoD which said ” we can confirm that there was no UK involvement” in the event.

September 17th 2016: Al Tharda Mountain, Deir Ezzor governorate, Syria
Summary:
In a major ‘friendly fire’ incident which helped shatter an already precarious ceasefire, between 15 and 65 Syrian troops besieged by ISIL were reported killed – and up to 120 more injured – after a Coalition raid targeted their locations.
US, British, Australian and Danish aircraft dropped 34 bombs and missiles on the camp and fired more than 300 rounds of ammunition before realising their error.
Russia and the Assad regime put the death toll at 62, and the Syrian Observatory later raised the death toll to 83 killed, based on a report from regime officials. Tahtar al Majhar named 47 victims, including a major general, a brigadier and three colonels. However Deir Ezzor is Being Slaughtered has insisted that “the number of dead is not more than 13 including a first lieutenant.” And Zaman al Wasl said many of the officers listed as killed in the event had died some time earlier.
The United States, Australia, Denmark and the UK all said their aircraft had participated in what appears to have been a massed raid – usually reserved for major ISIL targets such as IED faclities or bunker complexes. The botched attack briefly allowed ISIL to capture the area before it as driven back by Russian airstrikes.
A furious Russia – which spent 27 minutes on hold as it tried to halt the raid – called an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council which was dismissed by the US as a ‘cynical stunt.’ Moscow also accused the US of “colluding with ISIL.”
Deir Ezzor 24 claimed that many of those killed were in fact forcibly conscripted prisoners: “Most of those killed were according to the source prisoners from the Athra prison brought there by Assad’s forces from Damascus to Deir Ezzor to participate in the fight against Daesh in order to cover the lack of personnel availabe to the army.” The Daily Beast also reported that this was a line of inquiry US officials were pursuing.
In a detailed statement issued on the day of the attack, CENTCOM noted: “Earlier today Coalition aircraft conducted an airstrike south of Dayr Az Zawr, Syria. Coalition forces believed they were striking a Da’esh fighting position that they had been tracking for a significant amount of time before the strike. The coalition airstrike was halted immediately when coalition officials were informed by Russian officials that it was possible the personnel and vehicles targeted were part of the Syrian military.
The location of the strike is in an area the coalition has struck in the past, and coalition members in the Combined Air Operations Center had earlier informed Russian counterparts of the upcoming strike.  It is not uncommon for the Coalition Air Operations Center to confer with Russian officials as a professional courtesy and to deconflict Coalition and Russian aircraft, although such contact is not required by the current U.S. – Russia Memorandum of Understanding on safety of flight.
Syria is a complex situation with various military forces and militias in close proximity, but coalition forces would not intentionally strike a known Syrian military unit, officials said. The coalition will review this strike and the circumstances surrounding it to see if any lessons can be learned.”
In an October 2016 speech to the United Nations, Syria accused the Coalition of deliberately sabotaging a peace deal: “In a clear attempt to destroy the truce the forces that are known as the international coalition led by the US carried out a raid on the Syrian army who is fighting Daesh in al Tharda mountain in Deir Ezzor and the terrorists robbed an aid convoy and burning it in the Aleppo countryside. As usual these were accompanied by a fabricated political and media campaign to accuse the syrian army and its allies of the crime. This is not the first time that these terrorist groups have carried out such a crime.”

According to Tahtar al Majhar [but see above] the dead included the names listed below. However a subsequent Airwars assessment found that at least 12 of those listed had in fact been killed in previous events. :

Four to 20 civilians were reported killed and 12 or more injured after an alleged Coalition, Russian or Assad regime strike at al Basira.
A photograph published by Euphrates Post [see below] showed what appeared to have been a major strike in a built up area of the town. And a video showed significant damage to a civilian neighbourhood, with a vegetable market also reportedly hit.
Most sources blamed the Assad regime, with Step News suggesting a far higher death toll: “Military regime aircraft today targeted a market in the town of al Basira resulting in a massacre of more than 20 people were killed.Ara news said 15 civilians were killed by Russia. The Syrian Observatory said 10 died at al Basira in unidentified strikes. And Shaam News was also unable to blame the perpetrator. 
Eldorar news made no mention of casualties – but said the Coalition had bombed al Basira bridge that day, “which is the last bridges in the eastern countryside linking the villages of the province, north of the Euphrates and villages south.”
Ara News instead blamed Russia.

Summary: Three children and an elderly woman died in a contested airstrike on a primary school at al Shaheel – with reports variously blaming the Assad regime, Russia and the Coalition.
The four victims were all internally displaced from nearby Deir Ezzor city. They were named by Euphrates Post as Franjiya Mhaissan al Nahar, the wife of the late Ali Al Ahmad Abu Hassan; the child Malak Barhan Adel al Mushref [pictured]; and another child named as Sulaf Mohammad Karbit.
Deir Ezzor 24, the Syrian Observatory and Euphrates Post reported only that unspecified warplanes had carried out the attack. The pro-regime site Al Ahed News instead said Assad’s forces had carried out the attack – as did Step News, Smart News and the Syrian Network (which said the attack was on a primary school.)
Masar Press and Deir Ezzor 24 instead blamed the Coalition.
In the most detailed report Syria News Desk – which blamed Russia – noted: “Media opposition activist Abu Wassim al-Dairi, quoting civilian sources said that ‘the air force targeted with two raids a secondary School in Al Shaheel which shelters displaced people from the village of Almrieih which is adjacent to the military airport at Deir Ezzor. The attack killed two children and an elderly woman and a man, and injured four others, all from one family. The bombing resulted in the destruction of the school building and extensive damage to nearby houses.”

September 30th – October 1st 2016: بادية هجين  Hajin desert, Deir Ezzor, Deir Ezzor governorate, Syria
Summary: 
Three or four civilian fuel truck drivers were reported killed along with a number of Daesh fighters, in the Hajin Desert area of Deir Ezzor.
According to blogger Hamad al Ramadan, “several fuel truck drivers were killed as well as a number of Daesh members, following international coalition raids yesterday.” Smart News and the Syrian Observatory said three truck drivers died.
Al Haal noted that “
Majd Ali (a resident of the eastern rural area) said in an interview  with al Haal that  the international coalition, “targeted, yesterday evening, four cars in the desert of Hajin, resulting in burning the cars and killing their drivers. The raids also  targeted a pick up truck belonging to IS near the place, which led to the death of all of them [IS members] and burned completely.”
And Fars News also noted that Coalition aircraft “targeted a number of tankers transporting oil was on their  way from the desert of Hajin into Iraqi territory.”
In what may be a reference to this or another event, on December 1st 2016 the Coalition issued the following statement: “After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances of each alleged civilian casualty report, CJTF-OIR assessed that the following 12 reports received in October are non-credible. Non-credible means that at this time there is not sufficient evidence available to determine that, more likely than not, a Coalition strike resulted in alleged civilian casualties.
Oct. 1, 2016, near Dayr az Zawr, Syria: No Coalition strikes were conducted on that day in the geographical.”

Civilians reported killed: 3-4, along with ISIL fighters
