In the race to capture ISIS territory, hundreds of civilians have been reported killed by airstrikes in Deir Ezzor governorate in the past two weeks. Russia, the regime and Coalition are all active in the area.
The Coalition’s top commander has repeatedly questioned whether large numbers of civilians are dying, even as international investigations are released.
In its third year as part of the Coalition bombing campaign, Australia is finally releasing regular logs of its airstrikes in Iraq and Syria.
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.
