‘OPÉRATION CHAMMAL
SITUATION MILITAIRE DU THEATRE

Sur le théâtre irako-syrien, la semaine a été marquée par le lancement mardi d’une offensive majeure contre les dernières emprises territoriales de Daech en Syrie.
Offensive contre les dernières emprises territoriales de Daech en Syrie
En Syrie, après plusieurs semaines de combat de faible intensité, les forces démocratiques syriennes ont repris le 1er mai l’offensive contre les deux dernières poches situées à la frontière irako-syrienne. De l’ordre de 2000 terroristes seraient encore retranchés dans ces poches qui sont les dernières emprises territoriales encore détenues par Daech au Levant.
Cette offensive d’envergure bénéficie d’un appui conséquent de la Coalition.
L’offensive est également coordonnée avec les forces de sécurité irakiennes qui se sont positionnées le long de la frontière pour interdire l’accès au territoire irakien aux djihadistes qui seraient tentés de fuir face à la progression des forces démocratiques syriennes.
Poursuite des actions de sécurisation en Irak
En Irak, cette semaine a été marquée par un rythme élevé des opérations sur l’ensemble du territoire. Les résultats ont été significatifs, notamment à Bagdad, en Ninive et dans l’Anbar où l’armée de l’air irakienne a d’ailleurs conduit des frappes en totale autonomie.
La réouverture à la circulation cette semaine de douze routes du centre de Bagdad illustre le retour progressif à la vie normale en Irak.

ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE
La Task Force Narvik termine la formation de près de 200 soldats.
Cette semaine, la TF Narvik a terminé un cycle qui a permis de suivre pendant 8 semaines, près de 200 stagiaires répartis dans cinq stages aux périmètres variés :
stage Driver d’apprentissage au déplacement en convoi dans un environnement hostile,
stage C-IED d’apprentissage des techniques de lutte contre les engins explosifs improvisés,
stage Heavy weapon d’apprentissage à l’entretien, la manipulation et l’utilisation d’armement lourds,
stage Medic d’apprentissage des techniques de sauvetage au combat,
et stage Sniper de formation aux techniques de tireurs d’élite.

La Task Force Monsabert encadre les artilleurs de la 6e division irakienne.
Du 22 au 25 avril 2018, la Task Force Monsabert a participé aux côtés d’instructeurs espagnols à la formation d’artilleurs irakiens de la 6e division irakienne.
Commençant par deux semaines de théorie à l’école d’artillerie, le stage s’est poursuivi par une phase dynamique sur le camp de Besmayah, près de Bagdad, où des séquences de déploiement et différents tirs artillerie ont été conduits.

La Task Force Wagram en appui de l’offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech présentes dans la vallée de l’Euphrate.

La Task Force Wagram est toujours engagée dans la vallée de l’Euphrate de façon à pouvoir appuyer l’offensive lancée dans la vallée de l’Euphrate.
Depuis le lancement de l’offensive mardi, elle a d’ores et déjà réalisé 5 missions de tirs (bilan du 25 avril au 1er mai).
Au total, depuis le début de son engagement, la TF Wagram a réalisé 1659 missions de tirs.

Les bases aériennes en Jordanie et aux EAU en appui des opérations.

L’activité des forces aériennes françaises engagées dans l’opération Chammal se poursuit en appui des forces engagées au sol.
Sur la semaine écoulée, les aéronefs engagés dans l’opération Chammal ont réalisé 21 sorties aériennes en appui des forces locales engagées au sol (bilan du 25 avril au 1er mai). Une frappe a été réalisée pour détruire une cache d’armes.
Bilan total depuis le 19/09/14 :
8035 sorties / 1449 frappes / 2239 objectifs neutralisés.’

The build-up to Operation Roundup has seen a significant increase in offensive operations against Daesh. A recent coalition strike in Dashisha on April 29th killed Nur al-Din, an Iraqi leader with the Daesh terrorist financial network. His removal deprives Daesh of a key leader for financial resourcing and demonstrates the effectiveness of partner force efforts throughout Operation Roundup to rid the Iraqi Syria border regions and the middle Euphrates River Valley of Daesh remnants.

The build-up to Operation Roundup has seen a significant increase in offensive operations against Daesh. A recent coalition strike in Dashisha on April 29th killed Nur al-Din, an Iraqi leader with the Daesh terrorist financial network. His removal deprives Daesh of a key leader for financial resourcing and demonstrates the effectiveness of partner force efforts throughout Operation Roundup to rid the Iraqi Syria border regions and the middle Euphrates River Valley of Daesh remnants.

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners continue to exert pressure on Daesh senior leaders and associates in order to degrade, disrupt and dismantle Daesh structures and remove terrorists throughout Iraq and Syria. This will prevent the terrorist group’s ability to resurge and resume its intent to threaten and destabilize the international community.

Update from UK MoD for Wednesday 9 May:

‘Wednesday 9 May – Typhoons bombed a pair of terrorists in western Iraq…

Royal Air Force aircraft have continued to fly armed reconnaissance missions over Iraq and Syria in the fight against Daesh. Typhoons, Tornados and Reaper’s have continued to support the Iraqi security forces as they deal with attempts by Daesh to resume terrorism within the country and provided close air support to the Syrian Democratic Forces clearing terrorist pockets in the Euphrates River valley.

Speaking at a Global Coalition campaign update in London, Deputy Commander of the Combined Joint Task Force, Major General Felix Gedney, said:

The campaign against Daesh is not over. We will continue to fight side by side with our international allies until the threat Daesh pose to our security at both home and abroad is eliminated.

The one year anniversary of the atrocious terrorist attack in Manchester this week serves to underline the importance of totally eradicating Daesh and its poisonous ideology.

A flight of Royal Air Force Typhoon FGR4s were tasked on Wednesday 9 May to deal with two terrorists who had been spotted by a coalition surveillance aircraft as they moved on foot in the western desert of Iraq, some 25 miles south-east of Ar Rutbah. The Typhoons successfully located the terrorists and used a single Paveway IV guided bomb to strike them.’

From Dutch MoD on May 9th:

[Between May 2nd and May 8th Dutch F-16s flew 7 missions in support of ground troops in Deir Ezzor. The Dutch MoD reports that weapons were deployed in one mission, but does not provide the near location of the airstrike.]

‘Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners have increased offensive activity against Daesh targets in designated parts of Iraq and Syria throughout the month of May under Operation Roundup.

On May 1, the Syrian Democratic Forces announced the resumption of major offensive operations in the Middle Euphrates River Valley. Since then, the SDF has continued to gain ground through offensive operations, coupled with precision Coalition strike support.

During the first 17 days of Operation Roundup, the Coalition has conducted 132 strikes with 161 engagements. This demonstrates a 78% increase over the 74 strikes conducted in March, and sets OIR’s strike tempo at a level that will likely surpass the 183 strikes recorded for the entire month of April 2018.

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners continue to exert pressure on Daesh senior leaders and associates in order to degrade, disrupt and dismantle Daesh structures and remove terrorists throughout Iraq and Syria. Daesh morale is sinking on the frontlines as privileged Daesh leaders increasingly flee the battlefield, taking resources with them.

Operations over the coming weeks will continue to build momentum against Daesh remnants remaining in the Iraq-Syria border region and the MERV. The Coalition remains committed to the lasting defeat of Daesh here, increasing peace and stability in the region and protecting all our homelands from the Daesh threat.

Update from UK MoD for Monday 14 May:

‘Monday 14 May – Typhoons bombed a terrorist mortar position in eastern Syria…Typhoons delivered a further attack against Daesh on Monday 14 May; a Paveway IV was employed to destroy successfully a mortar position and ammunition cache which had been spotted in eastern Syria.’

From French MoD on May 24th:

[France reports that on the night of May 14-15th, a patrol of two Rafale bombs with precision-guided bombs took off from the planned air base in Jordan to strike an ISIS logistics building in the Euphrates Valley in Syria. It took three refuelings and six flight hours for both Rafales to accomplish this mission. The jets fired a 250kg ‘AASM’ bomb.]

Chammal : destruction d’un bâtiment logistique de Daech par les Rafale de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie

Mise à jour : 24/05/2018
Dans la nuit du 14 au 15 mai 2018, une patrouille de deux Rafale équipés de bombes à guidage de précision a décollé de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie pour réaliser une frappe sur un bâtiment logistique de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate en Syrie.

L’opération était double : après avoir rejoint la Syrie, les Rafale ont d’abord réalisé une mission de Close Air Support afin d’appuyer les troupes au sol engagées dans l’offensive contre le dernier bastion de Daech. À l’issue, ils ont réalisé une frappe planifiée et ordonnée par le centre des opérations aériennes de la coalition (CAOC), situé sur la base aérienne d’Al Udeid au Qatar, qui visait à détruire un bâtiment logistique utilisé par l’organisation terroriste.
Une reconnaissance du site en coordination avec un drone de la coalition et le dialogue avec un contrôleur aérien avancé ont permis de s’assurer de l’absence de risque de dommage collatéral. L’équipier a procédé au tir d’une bombe de précision « AASM », pour armement air-sol modulaire, de 250kg, la cible étant « illuminée » par le leader, c’est-à-dire guidée laser jusqu’à l’impact. La munition a impacté au centre du bâtiment permettant à cette frappe d’atteindre tous les effets militaires recherchés.
Il aura fallu trois ravitaillements et six heures de vol aux deux Rafale pour accomplir cette mission qui traduit la détermination des armées françaises à poursuivre la lutte pour détruire les résidus de l’organisation terroriste Daesh.
Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’

‘CHAMMAL
SITUATION MILITAIRE DU THEATRE
Sur le théâtre irako-syrien, cette semaine a été marquée par la poursuite de l’offensive contre les dernières emprises territoriales de Daech en Syrie et par le bon déroulement des élections parlementaires en Irak.
Offensive contre les dernières poches daechies en Syrie
En Syrie, l’offensive menée contre les dernières poches de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate suit son cours. Menée par les forces démocratiques syriennes, elle est appuyée par la Coalition et coordonnée avec les forces de sécurité irakiennes positionnées en interdiction de leur côté de la frontière.
Depuis le 1er mai et le lancement de l’offensive, plus de 30 km2 de terrain ont été repris à Daech.
Poursuite des actions de sécurisation en Irak
En Irak, les forces de sécurité irakiennes ont été principalement engagées dans la sécurisation des élections parlementaires qui se sont déroulées sans incident majeur. La France a participé à aider les Irakiens, en particulier avec un stage d’apprentissage à l’utilisation de drones qui ont permis la surveillance des abords de certains points de vote.
En parallèle, les opérations des forces de sécurité irakiennes se sont poursuivies, en particulier dans les secteurs de Tal Afar et Mossoul.

ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE
Formation au profit des forces de sécurité irakiennes
Les instructeurs de la Task Force Narvik ont débuté depuis le 29 avril l’enseignement d’un nouveau module intitulé « Intelligence Collecting Course » au profit des forces de sécurité irakiennes.
Ce stage a pour but de former des petites unités autonomes capables de s’infiltrer, de se dissimuler, de collecter, d’analyser et de faire remonter des informations afin de fournir du renseignement tactique et appuyer le commandement.
Cette nouvelle formation dure un mois, deux semaines de cours théoriques suivies par deux semaines de pratique.

La Task Force Wagram en appui de l’offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech présentes dans la vallée de l’Euphrate.
La Task Force Wagram est toujours engagée en appui de l’offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate.

[After two weeks of reported weapon deployments in Deir Ezzor, the Dutch MoD reports that between May 16th-22nd jets have not engaged in any strikes. Dutch F-16s did support ground troops in Deir Ezzor and near Al Anbar in 8 missions.]

Weekoverzicht Defensieoperaties

De Nederlandse militairen in Mali trainden een medische evacuatie voor een gewonde militair. Het ging om een realistisch onaangekondigd scenario. Een overzicht van Defensieoperaties in de week van 16 tot en met 22 mei 2018.

Een Nederlandse militair raakt gewond. Collega’s stabiliseren hem en leggen drukverbanden aan om de bloedingen te stoppen. Er wordt al snel een medische evacuatie aangevraagd: een NH90 van het Duits-Belgische helikopterdetachement.

Een helikopter met gespecialiseerde Belgische bemanning landt. De NH90 met patiënt vertrekt naar Gao. Het role 1-hospitaal is gewaarschuwd. In Gao staat een gepantserde Duitse Fuchs klaar. Die brengt de gewonde militair met spoed naar het Nederlandse role 1.

Natuurlijk worden alle elementen van deze oefening grondig en internationaal geëvalueerd. Want over 5 minuten kan het echt zijn.

Midden-Oosten

In de strijd tegen terreurorganisatie ISIS ondersteunden Nederlandse F-16’s grondtroepen tijdens 8 missies. Dat gebeurde in de provincie Deir Al Zour in Oost-Syrië en nabij de Iraakse provincie Al Abar. Bij geen van de missies zijn wapens ingezet.

Militaire instructeurs in Irak leren Koerdische strijders gebieden te beveiligen. Daarbij staan onder meer wapenhandelingen, medische verzorging, oorlogsrecht en civiel-militaire samenwerking op het programma. De door de coalitie opgeleide instructeurs verzorgen zelf ook een deel van de opleiding.

From French MoD on May 24th:

[France reports that on the night of May 14-15th, a patrol of two Rafale bombs with precision-guided bombs took off from the planned air base in Jordan to strike an ISIS logistics building in the Euphrates Valley in Syria. It took three refuelings and six flight hours for both Rafales to accomplish this mission. The jets fired a 250kg ‘AASM’ bomb.]

Chammal : destruction d’un bâtiment logistique de Daech par les Rafale de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie

Mise à jour : 24/05/2018
Dans la nuit du 14 au 15 mai 2018, une patrouille de deux Rafale équipés de bombes à guidage de précision a décollé de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie pour réaliser une frappe sur un bâtiment logistique de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate en Syrie.

L’opération était double : après avoir rejoint la Syrie, les Rafale ont d’abord réalisé une mission de Close Air Support afin d’appuyer les troupes au sol engagées dans l’offensive contre le dernier bastion de Daech. À l’issue, ils ont réalisé une frappe planifiée et ordonnée par le centre des opérations aériennes de la coalition (CAOC), situé sur la base aérienne d’Al Udeid au Qatar, qui visait à détruire un bâtiment logistique utilisé par l’organisation terroriste.
Une reconnaissance du site en coordination avec un drone de la coalition et le dialogue avec un contrôleur aérien avancé ont permis de s’assurer de l’absence de risque de dommage collatéral. L’équipier a procédé au tir d’une bombe de précision « AASM », pour armement air-sol modulaire, de 250kg, la cible étant « illuminée » par le leader, c’est-à-dire guidée laser jusqu’à l’impact. La munition a impacté au centre du bâtiment permettant à cette frappe d’atteindre tous les effets militaires recherchés.
Il aura fallu trois ravitaillements et six heures de vol aux deux Rafale pour accomplir cette mission qui traduit la détermination des armées françaises à poursuivre la lutte pour détruire les résidus de l’organisation terroriste Daesh.
Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’

 

Weekly update from French MoD on May 24th:

[Between 16th and 22nd May, France reports 34 artillery missions in the Euphrates Valley. French aircraft carried out 12 aerial sorties in support of ground troops but no strikes were conducted.]

CHAMMAL
SITUATION MILITAIRE DU THEATRE
Sur le théâtre irako-syrien, l’activité majeure demeure l’offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech en Syrie.
Offensive contre les dernières poches daechies en Syrie
En Syrie, les forces démocratiques syriennes, appuyées par la Coalition, ont achevé la conquête de la bande frontalière avec la saisie de Baghouz.
Le bilan des deux premières semaines d’offensive est positif dans la mesure où tous les objectifs ont été atteints et que la coordination entre les forces démocratiques syriennes et les forces de sécurité irakiennes s’est bien déroulée.
L’objectif consiste maintenant à poursuivre la réduction de ces poches qui sont les dernières emprises territoriales de Daech sur le théâtre.
Poursuite des actions de sécurisation en Irak
En Irak, la semaine a été relativement calme après les élections parlementaires dont le déroulement s’est effectué sans incident sécuritaire majeur.
Les forces de sécurité irakiennes mènent actuellement des opérations de sécurisation dans le nord de Bagdad, dans l’Anbar, en Ninive et dans la région de Tikrit.
ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE
Poursuite des actions de formation au profit des forces de sécurité irakiennes
La Task force Narvik poursuit ses actions de formation au profit des soldats irakiens de l’Iraki Couter Terrorism Service (ICTS). Deux stages sont toujours en cours : un stage de restitution au profit de 460 stagiaires et un nouveau stage d’apprentissage au recueil de renseignements au profit d’une vingtaine de stagiaires.
La Task force Monsabert conduit quant à elle deux stages au profit des soldats de la 6e division irakienne : un stage d’apprentissage des techniques de fouille opérationnelle et un stage dédié aux techniques de combat tactique dans un environnement pollué par des engins explosifs improvisés.

La Task Force Wagram en appui de l’offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech présentes dans la vallée de l’Euphrate

From CJTFOIR:

‘Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners have increased offensive activity against Daesh targets in designated parts of Iraq and Syria throughout the month of May.

On May 1, the Syrian Democratic Forces announced the resumption of major offensive operations in the Middle Euphrates River Valley. Since then, the SDF has continued to gain ground through offensive operations, coupled with precision Coalition strike support.

During the first 24 days of May, the Coalition has conducted 184 strikes with 231 engagements. This demonstrates a 147% increase over the 74 strikes conducted in March, and surpassed OIR’s strike tempo of 183 strikes recorded for the entire month of April 2018.

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partner forces continue to exert pressure on Daesh senior leaders and associates in order to degrade, disrupt and dismantle Daesh structures and remove terrorists throughout Iraq and Syria. Daesh morale is sinking on the frontlines as privileged Daesh leaders increasingly abandon their own fighters on the battlefield, taking resources with them as they flee.

Over the coming weeks, Operation Roundup will continue to build momentum against Daesh remnants remaining in the Iraq-Syria border region and the MERV. The Coalition remains committed to the lasting defeat of Daesh here, increasing peace and stability in the region and protecting all our homelands from the Daesh threat.

‘Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners have increased offensive activity against Daesh targets in designated parts of Iraq and Syria throughout the month of May.

On May 1, the Syrian Democratic Forces announced the resumption of major offensive operations in the Middle Euphrates River Valley. Since then, the SDF has continued to gain ground through offensive operations, coupled with precision Coalition strike support.

During the first 24 days of May, the Coalition has conducted 184 strikes with 231 engagements. This demonstrates a 147% increase over the 74 strikes conducted in March, and surpassed OIR’s strike tempo of 183 strikes recorded for the entire month of April 2018.

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partner forces continue to exert pressure on Daesh senior leaders and associates in order to degrade, disrupt and dismantle Daesh structures and remove terrorists throughout Iraq and Syria. Daesh morale is sinking on the frontlines as privileged Daesh leaders increasingly abandon their own fighters on the battlefield, taking resources with them as they flee.

Over the coming weeks, Operation Roundup will continue to build momentum against Daesh remnants remaining in the Iraq-Syria border region and the MERV. The Coalition remains committed to the lasting defeat of Daesh here, increasing peace and stability in the region and protecting all our homelands from the Daesh threat.

‘Operation Roundup targets Daesh remnants

SOUTHWEST ASIA – Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partners have increased offensive activity against Daesh targets in designated parts of Iraq and Syria throughout the month of May.

Since the May 1 start of Operation Roundup, Syrian Democratic Forces resumed major offensive operations in the Middle Euphrates River Valley. Since then, the SDF has continued to gain ground through offensive operations, coupled with precision Coalition strike support.

During the month of May, the Coalition has conducted 225 strikes with 280 engagements. This demonstrates a 304% increase over the 74 strikes conducted in March, and a 123% increase over the 183 strikes recorded in April 2018.

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve and its partner forces continue to exert pressure on Daesh senior leaders and associates in order to degrade, disrupt and dismantle Daesh structures and remove terrorists throughout Iraq and Syria. Daesh morale is sinking on the frontlines as privileged Daesh leaders increasingly abandon their own fighters on the battlefield, taking resources with them as they flee.

Over the coming weeks, Operation Roundup will continue to build momentum against Daesh remnants remaining in the Iraq-Syria border region and the MERV. The Coalition remains committed to the lasting defeat of Daesh here, increasing peace and stability in the region and protecting all our homelands from the Daesh threat.

From Dutch MoD on May 30th:

[After one week of no reported airstrikes, the Dutch report that they fired weapons at ISIS HQs near Abu Kamal and Hajin, in Syria in the last week. The MoD reported flying eight missions between May 23rd-29th; with only these two seeing weapon deployments.]

Weekoverzicht Defensieoperaties

De mortiergroep van de langeafstandsverkenningseenheid in Mali is gecertificeerd voor het gebruik van 81 mm mortieren. Het meer dan 7 maanden durende schietverbod is daarmee voor de eenheid opgeheven. Een overzicht van Defensieoperaties in de week van 23 tot en met 29 mei 2018.

Het schietverbod werd vorig jaar afgekondigd nadat de prestaties van het wapen bleken af te wijken. Dat was het gevolg van drukverlies tijdens het droppen van mortieren in de schietbuis. Ruim een week geleden werd de mortiergroep van de Nederlandse NAVO-bijdrage in Litouwen om dezelfde reden opnieuw gecertificeerd.

Midden-Oosten

Nederlandse F-16’s vielen ter ondersteuning van grondtroepen bij 2 missies ISIS-hoofdkwartieren  aan. Dat gebeurde in de omgeving van Abu Kamal en Hajin in de provincie Deir Al Zour in Oost-Syrië.

De jachtvliegtuigen ondersteunden de grondtroepen de afgelopen week tijdens 8 missies. Bij 2 daarvan werden wapens ingezet. Nederland neemt boven Irak en Oost-Syrië in coalitieverband deel aan de strijd tegen terreurorganisatie ISIS.

Militaire instructeurs in Irak leren Koerdische strijders gebieden te beveiligen. Daarbij staan onder meer wapenhandelingen, medische verzorging, oorlogsrecht en civiel-militaire samenwerking op het programma. Door de coalitie opgeleide instructeurs verzorgen zelf ook al een deel van de opleiding.

‘Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve Monthly Civilian Casualty Report

SOUTHWEST ASIA– Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve is committed to working by, with and through our Iraqi Security Forces and Syrian Democratic Forces partners to defeat Daesh in designated parts of Iraq and Syria, and helping set the conditions for follow-on operations to increase regional stability.

CJTF-OIR provides our partners appropriate equipment, advice and assistance to achieve our mission and attain the lasting defeat of Daesh. Support to partners also includes precision strikes preceded by a rigorous targeting process that aims at all times to minimize effects on non-combatant populations and civilian infrastructure.

The Coalition conducted a total of 29,358 strikes between August 2014 and end of April 2018. During this period, based on information available, CJTF-OIR assesses at least 892 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve.

In the month of April, CJTF-OIR carried over 476 open reports from previous months and received four new reports. The assessment of 159 civilian casualty reports have been completed. Five reports were determined to be credible, resulting in nine unintentional civilian deaths, while 149 were assessed to be non-credible and five to be duplicate. A total of 321 reports are still open.

Credible Reports– In each of five incidents, the investigation assessed that although all feasible precautions were taken and the decision to strike complied with the law of armed conflict, unintended civilian casualties regrettably occurred.

1. January 9, 2017, near Mosul, Iraq, via media report. During a strike which destroyed Daesh vehicle-borne improvised explosive device used to attack Coalition and partner forces two civilians were unintentionally killed.

2. November 1, 2017, near Al Hiri village, Deir Ezzour, Syria via self-report. During a strike on Daesh-travelled roadway two civilians were unintentionally wounded and three civilians were unintentionally killed when they entered the impact area.

3. November 16, 2017, near al Shadadi, Syria, via self-report. During a strike on Daesh-held building two civilians were unintentionally injured.

4. December 28, 2017, near Rayhaniyah, Syria, via self-report. During an attack two civilians were unintentionally injured and three civilians were unintentionally killed when they crossed into the impact area.

5. January 18, 2018, near Abu Kamal, Syria, via self-report. During a strike on Daesh-held building a scooter entered the impact area moments before the impact. One civilian was unintentionally killed.

 

Non Credible Reports–After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances of each civilian casualty report, CJTF-OIR assessed the following 149 reports as non-credible. At this time there is insufficient information to assess that, more likely than not, a Coalition strike resulted in civilian casualties.

1. November 7, 2016, near Khaniz al Salman village, Syria, via Airwars report. After a review of available information and strike video it was assessed that there is insufficient evidence to find civilians were harmed in this strike.
