Coalition civilian casualty claims for 2017 indicate record number of fatalities in Iraq and Syria
US officials confirmed to Airwars that they hit an alleged al Qaeda meeting place that “happened to be across the street ” from a mosque.
Likely non-combatant deaths from Coalition actions in Iraq and Syria rose by 70 percent compared to 2015. And thousands of civilians died in likely Russian airstrikes throughout 2016.
Record numbers of civilian fatalities were reported in November 2016 from both Coalition and Russian airstrikes
Airwars stresses the need for common rules and procedures when it comes to the monitoring of – and public accounting for – reported civilian casualties
